On May 13th, Jasiri X was awarded the highest honor by the Chicago Theological Seminary, the Doctor of Letters degree. Fifty-nine years ago, the same institution honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with the Doctor of Divinity degree. In his newsletter, Jasiri laments on how, “today, we still fight against the same injustices Dr. King fought against.”

Catch Jasiri X at the Hollywood Dormont Theater in Pittsburgh, PA on June 17 at 7pm; Allied Media Conference in Detroit, Michigan on June 18 at 4PM and the 2016 People’s Convention on July 8 at 1:30pm
