Conversations in Black Freedom Studies: The Struggle for Voting Rights & the Poor People’s Campaign



 

In 1968, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King championed the Poor People’s Campaign to unite people of all backgrounds against oppressive government policies. Today, Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis are leading a modern resurgence of the effort, challenging racism, voter suppression, poverty, militarism, and environmental devastation issues that continue to be at stake in the 2018 midterm elections. Join the new Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, as Professor Gloria Browne-Marshall discusses these topics and her latest work, The Voting Rights War: The NAACP and the Ongoing Struggle for Justice. Streaming live from the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City.
