We are very excited to begin the conference weekend Thursday evening, October 20th, with a concert with political singer/songwriter David Rovics at 7pm at Otherlands Cafe. Rovics has been called “the musical version of Democracy Now!”
by the show’s host, Amy Goodman. While David tours across the country and around the world, he’s never played in Memphis before, and we’re thrilled to bring his songs and ideas to our community, as well as to conference attendees.
We’re also bringing some of the highest caliber speakers to Memphis to date. Nipun Mehta and Pancho Ramos-Stierle of ServiceSpace will open the conference at 11am on Friday October 21st with an address to both the youth conference and regular attendees. And if you are a middle or high school student, or you know one, be sure to get them to the GKC Youth Conference occurring all day Friday.Dr. Clayborne Carson of the King Center in Stanford will address the conference Friday evening followed by a viewing and discussion with the Director of the film, Little Town of Bethlehem. David Bacon opens the conference Saturday morning, and we are thrilled to be offering simultaneous Spanish translation for Dolores Huerta‘s address Saturday afternoon. And of course we’ll be joined by activists, academics, and organizers from all over the country who will share their knowledge through workshops, films, presentations, papers and more over the course of the weekend.
