“Lives end when we are silent… Get in trouble, good trouble.”
Keynote Speaker: Tamika Jean-Baptiste, AMGEN Executive Director of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging
This year’s event theme, “Lives end when we are silent… Get in trouble, good trouble,” incorporates an homage to the late civil rights hero John Lewis, who was a close associate of Dr. King and made famous the words “Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and redeem the soul of America.”
The event will include brief comments from elected officials, spiritual music, and a virtual Freedom March, as well as the winning speech from the annual Alpha Kappa Alpha Youth Speech Expo.
