A pair of events will be held at Marquette in January to highlight the inspiring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and the civil rights movement.
On Wednesday, Jan. 24, Marquette will host a community discussion on “Civil Rights in Milwaukee Since the Time of Dr. King.” Hear from multiple generations of Milwaukee civil rights activists about how Dr. King’s life and work have impacted our city from the 1960’s to today.
On Thursday, Jan. 25, Marquette will host Dr. Clayborne Carson, the foremost historian of Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. Carson’s lecture will focus on Dr. King’s life and its impact on today’s communities. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear from a scholar and activist closely associated with Dr. King’s life and legacy—plan to attend.
