NYU's 17th Annual MLK Week, February 7-12, "The Beautiful Struggle for the New World"

For the 17th consecutive year, NYU commemorated Dr. King’s visit to the University Heights Campus in 1961 and honor his legacy by hosting a week-long (Feb. 7–12) schedule of special events.

The highlight of the 2022 NYU MLK Week was the University-Wide Event on Thursday, February 10. This year's virtual marquee featured an intergenerational conversation between Yara Shahidi (actress, producer, and change agent) and her mother, Keri Shahidi (executive producer and co-principal of 7th Sun Productions); and was moderated by Dr. Lisa Coleman.

Information about the University-Wide Event for NYU MLK Week 2023 will be announced in January 2023.
