A multifaith service featuring speaker Dr. Tricia Rose, diverse student voices and music by the Dartmouth Gospel Choir followed by a live interactive discussion with Dr. Rose.
This year's title is "Why Believe? Hope and Action through Art and Spirituality".
Dr. Tricia Rose is Chancellor’s Professor of Africana Studies and the Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University. Rose is an internationally respected scholar of post-civil rights era black U.S. culture, popular music, social issues, gender and sexuality. She is most well known for her groundbreaking book on the emergence of hip hop culture. Black Noise: Rap Music and Black Culture in Contemporary America is considered foundational text for the study of hip hop, one that has defined what is now an entire field of study. She is currently working on a project called How Structural Racism Works.
The 2021 MLK Multifaith Celebration is co-sponsored by the Tucker Center, Artivism, the Leslie Center, the Department of Music, and AAAS.
