Mount Holyoke College welcomes Heather McGhee in conversation with Interim President, Beverly Daniel Tatum for our annual MHC Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration on Thursday, January 26 at 7 pm Eastern Time. This event will also include an intergenerational dialogue with college students.

This event is a collaboration with the Joseph and Evelyn Lowery Institute for Justice and Human Rights and Spelman College. Understanding racial healing with a focus on the solidarity dividend will help us all deepen our knowledge about how to work together for our shared humanity and survival in the 21st century.

As a collaborative event, the conversation will launch Mount Holyoke's work as a Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Campus Center focused on cultivating narrative change, racial healing and relationship building - the TRHT at Mount Holyoke seeks to create communal relationships across campus and throughout Western Massachusetts. Our ongoing connection to the Lowery Institute and Spelman College's TRHT is a vital part of developing opportunities for racial justice particularly with an intersectional lens that encourages partnerships with community-based organizations, gender diverse women's colleges and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
