Celebrating Diversity

Join the UMGC community for an exploration of Dr. Martin Luther King's ideals and hopes for the nation, especially as expressed in his last book. In Where Do We Go from Here?, King posed a question that remains unanswered more than a half century later. Where is "here"? And who are "we"? As we begin a new era, how do we begin to address this crucial question to help us proceed?
