The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr. was the keynote speaker at DePaul’s 21st annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Prayer Breakfast on Jan. 16, 2018. Horace Hall, associate professor of human development in the College of Education, moderated the conversation. Hall and Jackson compared the current political climate and racism with that in the 1960s and discussed strategies for creating what Jackson described as a “globally inclusive country.” Jackson also urged universities to enable students to vote on campus. Hosted by the Office of Institutional Diversity, the event is part of the President’s Signature Series. See more photos at 2018 MLK Prayer Breakfast.
