Martin Luther King Jr. Remembrance Ceremony 2021

Tim Wise, a prominent anti-racist writer and educator gave this keynote presentation on January 17 for the Greater Burlington Multicultural Resource Center at the St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Burlington as part of a remembrance of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“All around us, we see the evidence today of what James Baldwin was talking about, a nation where the majority of our people and certainly the majority of those of us called white are dangerously naive about our past and as a result, unable to fully understand and appreciate why we are in the present moment where we find ourselves.”

We were pleased to help sponsor the remembrance as part of the Vermont Civics Collaborative, part of the nationwide “Why it Matters: Civics and Electoral Participation” initiative sponsored by the The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
