In an era of much uncertainty about what may come of our society tomorrow, there is no better time than NOW to ignite an intergenerational revolution for change. As we follow in the footsteps of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. himself, we will be bold about speaking out against the issues affecting our very lives because “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Quite simply, this is why The Revolution Is NOW. It is now because until “all of us are free, none of us are free.”We have a need for an intersectional movement on our hands, and it cannot be done without the voices of activists and change agents across all platforms. The essence of our 13th annual NYU MLK Week celebration truly means that we are beyond a time of trying to start a revolution, but rather, are living in a time that needs to be revolutionary.
