In a few short months America and the world will recall the tragic martyrdom of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., acknowledging the 50th year of the assassination which occurred on Thursday, evening of April 4, 1968 in Memphis, TN.
NewCORE (the New Conversation on Race and Ethnicity) and its partners invite our city to join us in its 2018 MLK Legacy Conversations as we continue the lengthy and rigorous journey toward this yet unfulfilled promise. The NewCORE 2018 Legacy Conversations: 80/80, beginning on Sunday January 14, 2018 - Wednesday April 4, 2018, will promote and convene 80 days of New Conversations.
NewCORE with its partners (WHYY, Inc; Philadelphia Media Network; Philadelphia Museum of Art; University of Pennsylvania, K-Love, and PECO) is leading 80 days of MLK Legacy Conversations amongst Philadelphia neighborhoods and communities for fostering appropriate Reflection, Education and Appreciation toward reconciling the life and martyrdom of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
