Description

*University of Washington Tacoma Professor Michael Honey lectures on his new book, “To the Promised Land: Martin Luther King and the Fight for Economic Justice.” Fifty years since an assassin’s bullet robbed us of twentieth century America’s most eloquent voice for human rights, a nationally renowned labor and civil rights scholar takes us beyond the iconic view of King as an advocate of racial harmony to explore his profound commitment to poor and working-class people and his revolutionary vision of economic justice. A community panel led by NAACP President Pastor Gregory Christopher will respond. Street and lot parking available for a 5:00 pm reception and 5:30 talk.
