A House Still Divided? The Unfinished Business of
the Civil Rights Movement
A Difficult Discussion Marking the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Death of Martin Luther King Jr.
Monday, March 19, 12:15-1:15 PM, City Room
April 4, 2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Today our nation is more just and free thanks to King’s legacy and the Civil Rights Movement. Yet more work remains to be done.
Join Dr. Jacqueline Rivers of the Seymour Institute and Chancellor Gregory Alan Thornbury for a frank conversation on the unfinished business of the Civil Rights Movement.
The King’s College Difficult Discussion series is designed to foster conversation about topics from which we often shy away. As a college committed to the principle of academic freedom, we wish to promote open and frank dialogue around difficult subjects that matter for our community and the world.
Moderator: Dr. David Tubbs, Associate Professor of Politics, The King’s College
· Dr. Jacqueline Rivers, Executive Director of the Seymour Institute on Black Church and Policy Studies and Lecturer in Sociology at Harvard University
· Dr. Gregory Alan Thornbury, Chancellor at The King’s College
