MLK: Generations Speak

Sunday, January 17, 2010 at 3–5 p.m.
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

WNYC presents the fourth annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at the Brooklyn Museum. "MLK: Generations Speak" will be co-hosted by WNYC’s Brian Lehrer and Celeste Headlee of The Takeaway. This year’s panelists comprise members of Martin Luther King’s generation—people who would remember him and were directly affected by his work—as well as younger activists, artists, and scholars who have been indirectly influenced by his vision. Panelists include:

• Dr. Roscoe C. Brown, President Emeritus, Bronx Community College, CUNY, and former Tuskegee Airman

• Majora Carter, founder of Sustainable South Bronx, co-host of Sundance Channel’s “The Green,” and host of the public radio series The Promised Land

• Eddie Glaude, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Religion at Princeton University, author of In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America

• Major Owens, former U.S. Congressman from New York and chair of the Congressional Black Caucus

• Patricia J. Williams, J.D., James L. Dohr Professor of Law at Columbia University, author of The Alchemy of Race and Rights
