MLK WEEK OPENING EVENT: A WHISTLE IN MISSISSIPPI (A PLAY)

6:00PM | MAKERSPACE, 6 METROTECH, BROOKLYN

Emmett Louis Till was born on July 25, 1941. When he was 14, he went to visit his great-uncle in Mississippi. According to several versions, Emmett whistled at a white woman and others say he grabbed her hand and asked for a date; others say all he did was say “Bye, baby” as he left the store. The play explores the impact of the untimely death of Emmett Till and the powerful ripples of change that transformed America. This performance will run 55 minutes and will be followed by a discussion on racial injustice in America during Jim Crow compared to today. Submit your RSVP to attend this year’s NYU MLK Week opening event.

The MLK Oratorical Contest is an annual event that provides graduate and doctoral students across the university to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through oratory performance. Join us this year and watch graduate students across the university perform in the style of oratory (e.g. poetry, speech, song, etc.), reflecting on this year’s NYU MLK Week theme: “The Revolution is Now.” This event is open to all NYU graduate students. A prize will be awarded to the winner of the contest.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7TH

REVOLUTION: FORGOTTEN. REMEMBERED. REIMAGINED.

7:00PM | CMEP LOUNGE (KIMMEL 804/805)

Revolution as we know it is the combination of what how we have forgotten, and how we have remembered, and what is reimagined. During this event, we hope to search for clarity while we reconcile the complex and multi-layered truth about revolution, particularly forgotten revolutions. Through uncovering revolutionary erasure we hope to engage and empower participants to reimagine the history and truth behind revolution and its relationship to today.
