Loretta Lynch Delivers Keynote Speech at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture at Harvard University

Litigation partner Loretta Lynch delivered the keynote speech at the second annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture at Harvard University on October 4. The event commemorates Dr. King’s 1962 speech at Harvard Law School, “The Future of Integration.”

Speaking to the challenge of navigating the intense backlash to progress we are seeing today, Loretta shared a message of infinite hope. “First thing: The sun will rise tomorrow. The second thing: When it does, we will have a voice, always. Always. No one can take that from you,” she noted. “Infinite hope. Infinite hope in the face of dark times, for which there was never a guarantee.”
