Diversity Forum and MLK Day Celebration

Dr. Michael “Mykee” Fowlin, kicked of our day-long MLK Day/Diversity Forum Series with a performance for the entire community. In his engaging and emotional one-man presentation, he took the audience on a journey by portraying several characters with a focus on inclusion and the importance – and beauty – of turning one’s hurt into self-reflection, healing, and action. Small group workshops led by faculty followed, with topics such as gender stereotyping in the media, affirmative action, and an examination of wealth and power. The day concluded with a variety of cultural performances on Cowell Chapel Stage by our students, showcasing the diversity of our own community.
