This Event Occurred in the Past.

LocationGustavus Adolphus College located at 800 West College Avenue in St. Peter

The annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration emphasizes the continuing struggle for civil rights in the United States and around the world. This year, it will focus on the history of race and racism in science and medicine. As Dr. King said, "Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.”

For the 2022 MLK Jr. Day Celebration, Gustavus will be joined virtually by Dr. Carolyn Roberts. As a professor at Yale University, Roberts' teaching blends history with medical sociology and public health to explore present-day crises related to race, racism, and health. Roberts is a dynamic speaker whose interests involve medicine as it relates to the Atlantic slave trade playing a critical role in modern medicine.
