Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration

Augustana College's annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., event will highlight and explain how college-in-prison programs are part of the "dream of the beloved community" through the inspiring voices of formerly incarcerated students.

The theme — "Redemption: Carrying on MLK’s Vision of the Beloved Community" — and the day's programs reflect Dr. King's call to bring people together, bridge equity gaps and provide hope and opportunities for social change. 

Panelists will include men featured in the PBS documentary "College Behind Bars," and members of the Bard Prison Initiative and the Augustana Prison Education Program.

The Quad Cities community is invited to hear the Bard Prison Initiative panelists via Zoom.
