Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Unity Day 2021

I'm Still Here

Monday, Jan. 18 at 10 a.m.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of a world where people would be evaluated not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

In 2020, his vision for America has yet to be realized, but through the efforts of those like Austin Channing Brown, change is coming.

Brown, a speaker, writer and activist, is the author of “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness.” Her work has been featured prominently in numerous high-profile media outlets as she highlights the ongoing realities of race in the 21st century — as well as the everyday actions that allow racism to survive.

As the keynote speaker for the City of Toledo and The University of Toledo’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, Brown will offer her unique perspective on the thoughts, actions and attitudes needed to help Blackness shine in our world today.

Join Brown for a special event honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his work to create a better world for all.
