HAP and the Black United Fund of Michigan (BUF) are honoring Dr. King’s legacy by gathering people from the nation’s two biggest generations together for a conversation about civil rights in the 21st century, facilitated by BUF President and CEO Ken Donaldson.

Senior citizens from Hannan Center and high school students from Detroit School of Arts are participating in the discussions about civil rights and inequality.

The discussions will begin with one question: Is Dr. King’s Legacy in jeopardy of being forgotten or will it inspire change for the next generation? Answers to this question and other stimulating dialogue are designed to encourage positive conversations around advancing the civil rights movement.

Results of these conversations will be available and posted on BUF Facebook and Twitterchannels. Reference Twitter hashtags #PartnershipsforImpact and #teamHAP to view the online discussions.
