University of Michigan Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium
Hosted by the Center for Social Solutions and U-M Detroit Center, Ford School Professor Earl Lewis moderates this panel discussion around the varying concepts of what is owed and what reparations might look like.
Three faculty members who have been recognized with one of the University of Michigan’s highest honors—including the Ford School's Earl Lewis and John Ayanian—will discuss their professional and scholarly experiences.
Panelists will seek to generate a discussion about how historical knowledge might contribute solutions to the problems of contemporary expressions of human slavery and offer new pathways to democracy and freedom.
Two elected leaders and a roundtable of U-M researchers will convene to mark the 50th anniversary of the legislation that created the Medicare system and the 80th anniversary of Social Security's creation.
