Martin Luther King Jr.: Warrior for Justice
April 4 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm$25
Few individuals have impacted the thinking and behavior of a nation like the Rev. Martin Luther King. An outstanding student, he graduated from college at 18 and went on to attain his Ph.D. in 1955. King came to national prominence directing a bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama and soon founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Arrested often and vilified by many, he persevered and became the greatest proponent of Civil Rights in American History but was murdered for his efforts in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968. The youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, his legacy as a champion of the rights of free peoples everywhere is literally incalculable.Instructor: Richard Rick Kistner
