68/20: One Day in May History + Art + Change

submitted by wangleon@augsburg.edu

ONE DAY IN MAY took place on May 15, 1968. During the turbulent aftermath of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Augsburg canceled classes to fully engage the school and community members on the issue of racism.

The extraordinary discourse surrounding ONE DAY IN MAY gave rise to subsequent advocacy work of marginalized students. These efforts have created a lasting impact that can be seen and felt on today’s Augsburg campus.
