Event description

Description

In 1968 Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King championed the Poor People’s Campaign to unite people of all backgrounds against oppressive government policies. Today, Rev. William Barber and Rev. Liz Theoharis are leading a modern resurgence of the effort, challenging racism, voter suppression, poverty, militarism, and environmental devastation issues that continue to be at stake in the 2018 midterm elections. Join us as Professor Gloria Browne-Marshall discusses these topics and her latest work The Voting Rights War: The NAACP and the Ongoing Struggle for Justice. A book signing will follow.
