As CivitasLA honors the legacy of the late Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are reminded of words from his last book, “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” First, the line of progress is never straight. For a period a movement may follow a straight line and then it encounters obstacles and the path bends. It is like curving around a mountain when you are approaching a city. Often it feels as though you are moving backward, and you lose sight of your goal; but in fact you are moving ahead, and soon you will see the city again, closer by.”
Join us for a conversation with Los Angeles City Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, another distinguished alum of Morehouse College, who shares perspectives on this legacy and reflects on where Black Los Angeles is as a community, challenges and opportunities, and its impact on the culture.
