Annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Speaker.

Nikole Hannah-Jones is a National Magazine Award-winning journalist and 2017 MacArthur Fellow, writing on modern day civil rights for The New York Times Magazine. Her widely read articles on segregated housing and schools, as well as her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America, expose how racial inequality is maintained through official policy. They also offer a compelling case for greater equity. She has written extensively on the history of racism and inequality, school resegregation and the disarray of hundreds of desegregation orders, and the decades-long failure of the federal government to enforce the landmark 1968 Fair Housing Act. She is currently writing a book on school segregation called The Problem We All Live With.
