Ashé Cultural Arts Center proudly announces the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.- César Chávez Luncheon, named for two giants who led non-violence peace movements for civil rights for African Americans and Mexican farm workers, respectively.   This event continues the conversations arising from "The African Presence in Mexico" - the education panels display, exhibiting at Ashé through February 28, 2014.    
 
Dr. Maria Rosario Jackson's expertise is in comprehensive community revitalization in marginalized communities, systems change, the dynamics of race and ethnicity and the roles of arts and culture in communities. Her work, based on more than 20 years of applied qualitative and quantitative research, appears in a wide range of professional and academic publications and she has been a speaker at scores of national and international conferences.  
 
Ambassador James A. Joseph, a self-described "patriot," has had a distinguished career in business, education and civil society. A frequent speaker to academic, civic and religious audiences, he is the author of three books: "The Charitable Impulse," "Remaking America," and "Leadership as a Way of Being." He has lived and traveled abroad extensively, helping emerging leaders in South Africa. His expertise spans the areas of leadership, ethics and public service; philanthropy and nonprofits, and social policy.
