The Iowa Dr. King Youth Summit invites youth, 6th grade through 12th, to participate in 2 Saturday sessions on Dr. King’s vision for the future. Both of the interactive sessions will include workshops on “What Would Dr. King Do,” “Black Youth as Agents of Change” and “Versus: Dr King and Malcolm X.” Youth will join in games, conversations and skill building to create change in our communities. Over the course of two Saturdays, students will be in community with educators who are Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) with support from allies. This is a space cultivated to support the needs of BIPOC students while students of other backgrounds are also welcome. All youth will be in this space focused on social justice, equity and community building.
