The University and Greater New Haven communities are invited to attend this year’s intercollegiate virtual MLK Commemoration that honors the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Yale Peabody Museum’s annual MLK celebration has been reimagined and transformed into a digital festival experience. This year the Peabody is hosting a series of free, online programs with opportunities to engage in critical dialogue and enjoy storytelling, music, dance, and spoken word performances.
Based on the New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic story of a refugee family who fled the civil war in Syria to make a new life in America, this acclaimed novel follows the Aldabaan family as they start a new life in Connecticut. Panelists in this event will examine the role of translation, both linguistic and cultural in the context of refugee resettlement.

Amidst ongoing debates about policing and mass incarceration, migrant detention centers have been focal points for mobilizations against the U.S. carceral regime. Through coordinated protest, testimonial acts, and hunger strikes, incarcerated migrants have drawn attention to systemic abuses in prisons, while defending their rights to belonging, family unification, and transnational mobility. Their actions revealed the ways that ICE used the COVID-19 pandemic to further repress prisoners.
