January 15, 2020

The College of Idaho is excited to welcome J. Dallas Gudgell to campus Sunday night at approximately 8 p.m. to speak to the community as part of the College’s annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gudgell’s appearance will come after a candle-light walk from Indian Creek Plaza in downtown Caldwell to the Langroise Center for Performing & Fine Arts. There is no charge to participate in the walk or to attend Gudgell’s appearance. He has nearly four decades of experience in environmental science as well as human rights, social and environmental advocacy. His talk is titled, “Is the moral arc of the universe just? … Not without our help.”

The Martin Luther King, Jr. events continue on Monday, starting at 9 a.m. with a service project at Farmway Village in Caldwell. For more information, please contact the College's Department of Inclusion & Intercultural Engagement.
