Why Martin Luther King, Jr. Endures in Hard Times


Date: 6:00pm EST February 17

A talk by Wil Haygood, the Starr Center’s 2017-2018 Patrick Henry Fellow

Fifty years ago, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was in a battle for the soul of America as he fought against the scourge of racism and economic inequality before his April 4, 1968, assassination. In recent months, many across America have taken to the streets to protest racial and gender inequality, drawing upon the passions of King. Patrick Henry Fellow Wil Haygood tells us why King’s moral courage endures.
