Martin Luther King Jr. Event 2016 Presenter: Black Lives Matter Co-Founder, Opal Tometi 

The annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Event is our annual celebration of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr held at the African Meeting House at 46 Joy Street, Boston MA. 

Opal Tometi is a Black feminist writer, communications strategist and cultural organizer. She is a co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, the historic political project and leader-full network was launched in the wake of the murder of Trayvon Martin in order to explicitly combat implicit bias and anti-black racism and to protect and affirm the beauty and dignity of all Black lives. Ms. Tometi is currently at the helm of the country’s leading Black organization for immigrant rights, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI), a national organization that educates and advocates to further immigrant rights and racial justice together with African-American, Afro-Latino, African and Caribbean immigrant communities.

The Creating the Dream Award is presented each year at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Event in recognition of the outstanding efforts of an individual, organization, or department at Suffolk University in services to Suffolk’s students of color.
