MLK Speaker Ruby Sales: “We All Every One of Us”

January 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This year’s MLK Day speaker, Ruby Nell Sales, was active in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the 1960s. She is the founder of the SpiritHouse Project, a national nonprofit that uses the arts, research, education, action, and spirituality to bring diverse peoples together to work for racial, economic, and gender justice, as well as for spiritual maturity. Recognizing a need to nurture the hope that still resides in young people as well as to revive an intergenerational community and human compassion, Sales is dedicated to strengthening the hope, courage, reason and will of young people to individually and collectively stand up for themselves with dignity, clarity and nonviolent persistence.

During this talk, Sales will focus on Martin Luther King Jr’s question “Where do we go from here: chaos or community?” She will discuss how we move from individualism to community. She will also address the question; “How can you have order in the midst of injustice since injustice fractures and oppresses? It violates our relationship with each other, God and the community.”
