APRIL 4, 1968: Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Death and How it Changed America

Please note DATE: Monday, April 21, 2008

LOCATION: OISE Auditorium, 255 Bloor St. W


The author of 16 books, including Debating Race, Holler if You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur and Why I Love Black Women, Michael Eric Dyson is making a rare Toronto appearance to talk about the “Promised Land” MLK spoke of in his final speech. Dyson has made recent appearances on Larry King Live to discuss “from King to Obama” – as the U.S. heads toward its first African American presidential nominee, the question of King’s legacy is as relevant as it’s ever been.
