KWAME ROSE ADDRESS OPENS MLK WEEK FOR PEACE

Social activist, hip-hop artist, blogger, and motivational speaker Kwame Rose will deliver the keynote address during the 30th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week for Peace celebration Jan. 20-23.

The address will serve as the kickoff for MLK Week, an annual joint collaboration between Xavier, Tulane, Loyola, and Dillard Universities. Additional events scheduled for the week include an Expressions of Unity and Step Off for the Dream in the Xavier University Center Friday (Jan. 22) at 7:00 and a volunteer service day Saturday (Jan. 23) which will get underway at 8:00 a.m. in the Loyola Residential Quad.

All events are free and the public is invited to participate.

Rose is best known for having boldly held mainstream media, particularly Geraldo Rivera of Fox News, accountable for its inaccurate representation of protestors during the Baltimore Uprising. He has been featured on countless national and international media outlets and is emerging as a sought out public speaker whose talks focus on justice issues. At just 21 years old, Kwame has emerged as a leader, community organizer, and motivator for youth advocacy.

His passion for public speaking once earned him a full scholarship to the University of Texas San Antonio as a member of the debate team. While there, he advocated for hip-hop infused education. After the completion of his freshman year, Kwame returned to his hometown of Baltimore to serve his community. He continues to fight for social justice through his music, as well as through a recent partnership with international artist Zakee Kuduro. After having served on the executive board of Brothers In Action, Inc., a mentoring group for young Black males in Baltimore City, for several years, Kwame is currently developing his own youth based advocacy group called V.O.I.C.E.S. (Vocalizing Our Intelligence Creating Effective Solutions).
