Hear public scholar, organizer and spoken word artist Walidah Imarisha connect Oregon’s past and present to the concept of a racially just future. 
Walidah is the winner of a 2017 Oregon Book Award for Angels with Dirty Faces: Three Stories of Crime, Prison, and Redemption and co-editor of Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements.  She has also taught classes in Portland State University’s Black Studies department and at Stanford University.


“Whenever we try to envision a world without war, without violence, without prisons, without capitalism, we are engaging in an exercise of speculative fiction. Organizers and activists struggle tirelessly to create and envision another world, or many other worlds, just as science fiction does…” - Walidah Imarisha

Celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and consider the link between his work and contemporary social justice movements.


This event is presented by the Office of Global Diversity and Inclusion
