Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words continue to raise us up to the fierce urgency of now. Fifty years after the March on Washington and 150 years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, we still stand at a crossroads of equality and freedom. As educators, we have an obligation to continue the good work of those ancestors who started the journey.

“It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment” 
(I Have a Dream, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.).

Indaba is a Zulu word for “important meeting” that seeks “to gather the right people together at the right time to discuss the right issues.” The Indaba emphasizes “deep talk” and acknowledges that we all have something important to share. Please come be a part of the discussion at the Umoja IX Conference.
