January 25, 2022 |

On Nov. 12, 1961, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. came to Mankato, Minnesota. While here, he gave two sermons at Centenary United Methodist Church and a speech at Mankato High School. To explore this history, the Kessel Peace Institute of Minnesota State University, Mankato and True Façade Pictures collaborated to make a 40-minute documentary. The film explores the history, context and legacy of Dr. King’s visit to Mankato and reflects on where we have been as a community, and where we need to be heading. The video premiered during a live online event on January 17 and included a panel discussion.
