As part of the bicentennial symposium, “From Selma to St. Louis,” honoring the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the symposium will host a panel, “King as Public Intellectual,” from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, in Boileau Hall.
The panel includes Dwight N. Hopkins, Ph.D., of the University of Chicago Divinity School, and M. Shawn Copeland, Ph.D., of Boston College.
Hopkins and Copeland will concentrate on King as public intellectual and social activist. They will take up questions of race, economic relations, and on-going civil rights campaigns in the modern world in light of King’s legacy, 50 years after his assassination.
Lunch will be provided.
