Gustavus hosts the 2012 Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Lecture featuring Pulitzer Prize winning author, Taylor Branch.

Branch will present an address titled: "Myths & Miracles from the King Years."

The trilogy's first book, Parting the Waters: America in the King Years (1954-63), won the Pulitzer Prize and numerous other awards in 1989.  Two successive volumes also gained critical and popular success: Pillar of Fire: America in the King Years (1963-65), and At Canaan's Edge: America in the King Years (1965-1968).  In 2009, The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President was published as a result of the eight-year collaboration while President Clinton was in office.
