To honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the online journal Ergon: Greek/American Arts and Letters features personal narratives by Greek/American educators and citizens who share thoughts about the significance of this commemoration for their person or their communities.

The purpose of this modest tribute is consistent with the civic scope of this public holiday: to draw Dr. King’s vision from the past into the present so that we might continue the conversation and practice of advancing the cause of civil rights. The collection offers a document for the present and a vision for the future. It focuses attention to how a host of Greek/American citizens place themselves in connection to this commemoration and how they envision the collective in the struggle against structural racism and toward interracial solidarity.
