“The Road To We” Roundtable at the Pink Palace

Two generations ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told us about the Mountaintop. He knew he wouldn’t get there with us. Question is, have we gotten there yet? Are we even close?

There’s a million long and winding roads to the promised land, and during our April 20 roundtable discussion, we hope to gauge where we stand in that journey.

In an event hosted by Win Sum Agency and Storyboard Memphis, in collaboration with the Pink Palace Museum’s Bicentennial exhibit, Making Memphis, we will take a hard look at where we are as a local culture based on Dr. Martin Luther King’s six areas of social change. 

Are we there? If not, what should we do to make certain we get there? We will also openly and candidly approach the topics of race, equity, and equality and discover ways to address these areas of concern to ensure a unified, forward progression of Memphis as we know it.

Our discussion will be led by panelists of diverse age, race, gender, ethnic, and ideological backgrounds, from organizations such Living Grace, Facing History and Ourselves, Playback Memphis, and Frayser Community Development Corporation. 

Together, they will provide integral context to our complicated past, unclear present, and uncertain future and provide insight on ways to move forward together and stay connected to Dr. King’s philosophy of creating lasting social change for all.

About Mark Fleischer 75 Articles
I was a career consultant and communications specialist in the payroll industry until moving from southern California to Memphis in late 2015. The Bluff City gave me a new start in the second half of my career, gifting me with a chance to return to my childhood fascinations with cities and my college passions in writing, theater, film, and storytelling, all the while allowing me to use my experience working with people, in consulting, teaching and communications, to bring a new voice to Memphis. This may be my first venture into multi-media publishing, but Life and Place - Memphis - gave me all the prep and tools I need.
