Hooks Scholar in Residence Inducted into the MLK Collegium of Scholars

We here at the Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change are pleased to announce that the Martin Luther King Jr. Collegium of Scholars at Morehouse College selected our Scholar in Residence, Andre E. Johnson for induction in a virtual ceremony on April 8, 2021. Established in 1985, as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. College of Ministers and Laity, the Collegium of Scholars is “comprised of academics and scholars, who may or may not be in the professoriate, who are committed to research, writing, teaching, and mentoring in a wide variety of disciplines and contexts that promote and give support to the work of peace through moral cosmopolitan responsibility.” Honorees selected for induction have “demonstrated and are evolving toward great achievement in their chosen vocation, a profound commitment to their community and society, the planet and the cosmos and are living their lives according to a high standard of cosmopolitan ethical options.”
