About this event

The event is presented by the Office of the President and Office of Minority Student Affairs in partnership with the Office of Alumni Relations and Constituent Engagement, and Office of Equity and Inclusion.

This year, Dr. Rheeda Walker, a professor of psychology and a behavioral scientist at the University of Houston, will deliver the University of Rochester’s 2022 Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Address. Walker will discuss the mental health challenges facing African Americans and take questions from the audience on Friday, January 21 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. EST.

Walker wrote The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health, a 2020 self-help book author Jemima Pierre has called “a Black cultural tour de force; a robust and revelatory declaration that our very own culture can save us.”

Walker’s work has appeared or been cited in the Washington Post, CNN Health, the Houston Chronicle, and Ebony magazine.

The event is free and open to the public and is scheduled to be virtual.

All attendees must register, and a Zoom link will be emailed to participants the day of the event.

Registration deadline is Friday, January 21 at noon.

Closed captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided for the event.
