George School will honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. beginning Sunday, January 17, 2021, with two days of special programming. On Sunday, Rosetta Lee returns to the community to lead the discussion “Safe to be Brave: Courageous Conversations.” An educator and activist, Rosetta shares, “topics like identity, difference, and oppression can raise anxiety for many people, and yet we must have the conversation in our schools and our lives to be more inclusive and culturally competent.”
On Monday, January 18, activist, peace trainer, and writer Daniel Hunter will serve as our keynote speaker and facilitator for breakout discussions afterward. Daniel is the Global Trainings Manager at 350.org and a curriculum designer with Sunrise Movement. He has trained ethnic minorities in Burma, pastors in Sierra Leone, and independence activists in northeast India. He is the author of the organizing manual Building the Movement to End the New Jim Crow and Strategy and Soul, a compelling narrative bringing to life the vibrancy of direct action campaigning. His most recent publication Climate Resistance Handbook brings together a wealth of learnings from the climate justice movement.
