To honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Northland College invites you to attend two talks given by Northland faculty—Charlie Krysinski and Noah Goyke. The talks will be at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute on Monday, January 16, 2023, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Beginning at 3:00 p.m., Charlie will present “A Little Trouble on 12th Street,” a talk focused on the racial unrest that broke out in Detroit’s 12th Street neighborhood in July of 1967. Labeled a “riot” by some and a “rebellion” by others, this talk explores the question of how Detroit’s 12th Street uprising ought to be remembered in the present.
Following Charlie’s presentation, Noah will present “In Heirs,” a talk focused on the role of unclear title and land loss among African Americans in the rural south. The talk will explore the basics of heirs’ property, how unclear title affects natural resource management, and what is being done to end the injustice of land loss.
The Northland College Choir will conclude the event by singing “Oh Brother Man,” a song that calls on us to have care and concern for all.
This event is free and open to the public.
