Teaching the Speeches of Dr. King and Congressman John Lewis

Georgetown’s MLK: “Let Freedom Ring! Initiative” takes on added significance this year, especially in light of last week’s insurrectionist violence at the U.S. Capitol. Faculty are annually encouraged to “Teach the Speech,” taking a selected speech from Dr. King and incorporating it into courses and other learning activities at the university.


Georgetown University’s Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service has ensured a commendable commitment to offering its full programming despite facing barriers in the virtual environment. The CSJ has become a model for how Georgetown’s various organizations can operate effectively amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and students and university staff alike should look to its efforts.
