An online conversation with Kevin Peterson and Dr. Peniel Joseph on MLK and Malcom X.

We are elated to announce that Dr. Peniel Joseph will join us for an evening of discussion about his new double biography of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. It is a stunning account of two men shaped and molded in Boston. Dr. Joseph is among our nation's top historians.

Popular accounts of the 1960s-era civil rights movement are often reduced to the story of two extraordinary visionaries: Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. In his book The Sword and the Shield, Peniel E. Joseph argues that by focusing on their differing doctrines of self-defense versus nonviolence, we’ve been blind to the scope of their shared activism and communion. Join Kevin Peterson and Dr. Peniel Joseph of a forthcoming biography on King, for a online conversation about how the legacies of these civil rights leaders informs the current struggle for racial justice.
