World House, MLK Quote Join us for Humanitini, our monthly think ‘n drink! We’ll discuss the role of travel, communications, and ethics in shaping today’s global citizen. Humanitini: World House will be held on October 16 at 6:30 p.m. at The Coupe (3415 11th St NW). We’ll also explore the meaning of global citizenship in an international city like DC. Our panelist Elizabeth Ogunwo is a former Peace Corps volunteer.

Background

In 1967, Martin Luther King embraced a vision of Americans as dwellers in a “world house” of international neighbors; “a world-wide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, and class.” In the 21st century, what are the implications of global citizenship?

To start thinking about these issues, have a look at the short reading and questions on our Human Ties blog and leave us your comments!

RSVP for Humanitini: World House on October 16. Let’s start a global dialogue!
