Author and cultural critic Roxane Gay will be the 2020 Community MLK Celebration keynote speaker on January 23, 2020. Gay’s work garners international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. With a deft eye on modern culture, she brilliantly critiques its ebb and flow with both wit and ferocity.
This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required.
