Dr. Justin Rose reflects on MLK legacy in annual Centre convo
Centre College will reflect on the life and legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. during its annual community convocation on Monday, Jan. 15, 7 p.m. in Newlin Hall at the Norton Center for the Arts.
This year’s event will feature Dr. Justin Rose, assistant professor of politics at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. His convocation address, “The Drum Major Instinct: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Theory of Political Service,” also the title of his current book project, explores how King transformed the Christian notion of service into a politically salient concept.
More generally, Rose’s work examines the intersection between race and urban politics. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, his M.A. from Baylor University and his B.A. from Rutgers University.
In addition to Rose’s speech, Centre’s step team will perform during the event.
