MLK Jr. Week: Join us for a MLK Jr. Week lecture presented by Maurice Dolberry.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a powerful and multi-faceted man, whose impact on modern humanity belies the 39 years of his shortened life. While Dr. King’s legacy is now regularly praised by conservatives and condemned by radicals in the US, the reality of who he was is often lost in the tug of war. This program will help us reconcieve Dr. King as a courageous revolutionary and scholar, whose unapologetic Blackness stood at the foundation of his activism.
