On the evening of May 23, 1962, in Dartmouth Hall, an audience of students and Upper Valley residents rose to their feet to welcome the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The event, a lecture on the state of the American civil rights movement, was the highlight of the year's Great Issues Course, a core academic component for all graduating seniors of the classes of 1947 through 1966. King's words, their meaning, and the passion with which only Dr. King could deliver them profoundly influenced those who attended the evening lecture.
This year, on the 60th anniversary of this speech, Dartmouth welcomes Dr. King's son, Martin Luther King III, to honor his father's life and legacy, and to celebrate members of the Dartmouth community who show continued commitment to social justice causes. The keynote speech will be followed by the presentation of the Dartmouth 2022 Social Justice Awards.
