Resistance Requires Excellent Scholarship: Seeding a Vision for Change

Wednesday, February 15, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

In observance of 2023 Black History Month, Sean Joe will examine and provide a personal response to the September 1967 call to action by the then-only 38-year-old, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to the American Psychological Association Annual Convention in Washington, D.C.  He was already a winner of the coveted Nobel Peace Prize. Joe uses King’s address to remind us that the historic mission of the social and behavioral sciences is “to enable mankind to take possession of society.” This presentation is part of the Brown School's recognition of Black History Month.

Register online to receive Zoom information on the morning of the event. You can also join us during the live stream.
