    "King's Dream vs. Our Reality: Hope in the Face of Resurgent Racism"

    Featuring Theo Wilson

    Saturday, Feb. 11, 3-5pm
    Join us for a special presentation, "King's Dream vs. Our Reality: Hope in the Face of Resurgent Racism," featuring special guest Theo Wilson, author, activist, poet, activist, and host of The History Channel's "I Was There." 

    It's been 55 years since an assassin's bullet took Dr. King from this world, and still his words ring true. That isn't a good thing. It means we still have a lot of ground to cover before his dream can become reality.  Join us as we unpack the myths, the madness, and the money behind the true legacy of Dr. King.
