EJS President Eva Paterson was in San Diego today to keynote the 30th All Peoples Celebration, an annual gathering that honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. See Eva’s message, and below is a video of her remarks, and some reactions on Twitter to her keynote.
Inspiration from civil rights leader @evapaterson on #MLKDay at @AllianceSnDiego #APC30, talking abt Beloved Community & connecting with everyone around the world who works for peace and justice. Also: let’s stop “defanging” Dr. King and recognize his focus on justice, inclusion. pic.twitter.com/SpRpquuUu6
