BLACK LIVES MATTER, CLIMATE CHANGE, POLITICS AND RACIAL JUSTICE: CHANNELING DR. KING’S LEGACY THROUGH YOUTH PROTEST AND ACTIVISM WITH A MEDIA LITERACY LENS

What can students do to speak out forcefully about the things that matter most in today’s world and to make a genuine difference in the lives of others? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s strong commitment to peaceful but forceful protest provides the powerful inspiration and model to take on the increasingly challenging issues of militarism, consumerism, racism – and climate change. Media literacy can provide the means, through critical analysis and evaluation of how we know what we know in today’s complex and mediated world, thoughtful reflection on our own biases and points of view, and the development of effective communication skills through multiple media forms. Free and open to the public.
