How Many More ’Til We Rise Up?
Multicultural Education, a Radical Response of Love, Life and Dr. King’s Dream

Multicultural education was born out of the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, a foundation built on advocacy and resistance. As we gather in Memphis for the 28th Annual International Conference of the National Association for Multicultural Education, we honor the Civil Rights Movement, which not only brought change to the United States, but to the rest of the world. During this 50th anniversary year of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis, the National Association for Multicultural Education calls for radical education that meet the needs of an emerging majority-minority nation, empowers marginalized groups, challenges anti-blackness, xenophobia, all forms of oppression, and neoliberal efforts that seek to make unjust practices more palatable. There can be no apartheid United States or any place else with the expectation of acceptance from people of color. Multicultural education must challenge policies that seek to roll back more civil rights gains, for which Dr. King and a diversity of others fought. In a time when public education in the United States is under attack, nationalism, nativism, and xenophobia are also on the rise, Multicultural education must forge ahead and respond to these challenges with clarity of purpose. 

The National Association for Multicultural Education invites researchers, practitioners, community activists, policymakers and all those working toward greater equity in education around the world to the 28th Annual International Conference. The conference is a time to engage in dialogue, share research, best practices, and collaborate across contexts locally and globally to take action that disrupts injustices and inequities in education and resists attacks to diminish public education disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable rural and urban communities. Dr. King reminded us that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere and, now more than ever, Multicultural Education must be at the forefront in reviving Dr. King’s dream.
