SMU Human Rights Program

#FlashbackFriday: Today, on the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we remember the SMU Dr. Dennis Simon Civil Rights Pilgrimage. #SMUHumanRights students go on this annual journey to learn about his legacy. Led by Professor Ray Jordan and organized by the SMU Office of the Chaplain and Religious Life, we visit the sites and hear from the "Foot Soldiers" of the #CivilRightsMovement. The social realities of this pandemic remind us that Dr. King's struggle for #racialjustice continues. #DemandDignity with us at smu.edu/supporthumanrights. #MLK52

Audio: Dr. King's last speech, "Iโ€™ve Been to the Mountaintopโ€
