THE REV. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Radical Nonviolence and “the Fierce Urgency of Now”

Join Clarence B. Jones, Dr. King’s personal lawyer, political strategist and speech writer during the last 7 years of his life, and others, as we honor Dr. King’s 90th birthday; revisit his core beliefs and commitments; and explore how his moral clarity and vision might guide us to address the forces of backlash, retrenchment, white supremacy and nationalism – in what Dr. King called “the fierce urgency of now.”

All are welcome. No charge. Pizza provided. Information: dcurtis@scu.edu
