(Willcocks & Bancroft - across from Bancroft Hall)

One of the top 100 most influential black Americans (Ebony magazine) Michael Eric Dyson, is coming to Toronto to launch his latest book:

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

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.

I just realized that Martin Luther King Jr died on my birth date! I guess you will be there, so we in Blogland can get a summary!

Echoing Stunner. Let us in blog land know how it goes.

I just realized. We've come so far when it comes to race relations. MLK would cry tears of joy right now. I, like Stunner, am interested in how this goes.
