On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Tufts University will hold its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration from 4-7 p.m. in Breed Memorial Hall, and also by livestream through Somerville Community Access Television.

This year’s celebration will begin with students of Grace Talusan (Department of English) sharing stories of hope and resilience in challenging times, and will continue with a conversation with two prominent alums, Christina Greer, J00 and Zerlina Maxwell, A03. Christina Greer is associate professor of Political Science and American Studies at Fordham University, and Zerlina Maxwell is director of Progressive Programming for SiriusXM and a political analyst for NBC/MSNBC.
