Every year, as part of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, a committee of students, faculty and staff host an event related to the power of storytelling. Martin Luther King Jr. was many things: a reverend, civil rights activist, writer, and powerful orator. But he was also someone who believed that when all people from all walks of life are able to speak from their own perspectives about their own life experiences, everyone benefits. Formerly known as the Tunnel of Oppression, Pass the Mic aims to lift up this particular part of MLK Jr.'s legacy using a series of creative expressions performed by members of our campus community that depict real-life scenarios of power, privilege, and oppression.
Pass the Mic will be held on Thursday, January 21st, 2021 in a virtual format. There will be three separate sessions of the same content for participants to choose from:
