We welcome the entire campus and Tacoma community to join us in our 32nd annual campus celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
The featured keynote speaker, Eddie Moore Jr., will present a speech that addresses not only the inspiring words of Dr. King—"we cannot turn back"—but also his ideas that we cannot be satisfied with injustice and inequality, and that his legacy is an inspiration to keep moving forward.
Moore has pursued and achieved success in academia, business, diversity, leadership, and community service. In 1996, he started America & MOORE LLC to provide comprehensive diversity, privilege, and leadership trainings/workshops. Moore is recognized as one of the nation’s top speakers and educators. His interview with Wisconsin Public Radio won the 2015 Wisconsin Broadcasters Association's Best Interview in Medium Market Radio and he is featured in the film I’m not Racist….Am I? Moore is the founder and program director for the White Privilege Conference (WPC). Under his direction and inclusive relationship model, the WPC has become one of the top national and international conferences for participants who want to move beyond dialogue and into action around issues of diversity, power, privilege, and leadership. In 2014 Moore founded The Privilege Institute (TPI) which engages people in research, education, action, and leadership through workshops, conferences, publications, and strategic partnerships and relationships. Moore is co-founder of the online journal Understanding and Dismantling Privilege, co-editor of the books Everyday White People Confront Racial and Social Injustice: 15 Stories and The White Women’s Guide to Teaching Black Boys. Now, in addition to full-time consulting, he serves as founder and president of TPI, and lives in Green Bay, WI. Moore received his Ph.D. from the University of Iowa in Education Leadership. His Ph.D. research is on Black Football Players at Division III Schools in the Midwest.
