Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium

Organized by the Office of Community & Equity, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Symposium is a campus-wide initiative to honor Dr. King and celebrate his legacy and ideals. The symposium, which started in 2016 and occurs every January on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, aims to bring together a variety of voices and perspectives to foster greater awareness of the role Dr. King has played in the lives of all Americans and to facilitate conversations that move all of us to work toward true justice in our community and the larger global community of which we are a small part.

The symposium has grown over the years, and more than 100 students and faculty from Washington-area schools typically join Episcopal’s faculty, students, and staff for the workshops and discussions. Visiting speakers have included historians, activists, faith leaders, writers, artists, and musicians. A hallmark of the symposium has been that it combines all-School programming, which typically features special guests from outside our community, with smaller, more intimate workshops that feature the collegiality, experience, and familiarity of Episcopal adults and the wisdom of their experiences.
