Award-winning playwright Katori Hall will deliver the keynote address on January 21 at Dartmouth’s 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. The celebration at Dartmouth dates back to the 1970s.
“I am not a politician. I am a playwright,” says Hall in a recent episode of American Voices on PBS. “I do not feign thinking that I can create policy that will change the world. But I can create stories that can move people, hopefully move people to action, but mostly move people to just having a more open heart, which I think is the first step towards action.”
This year’s theme is “The Art of Non-Conformity: Making the World Better.” The celebration features a slate of events from January 17 to February 1.
