Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Lecture by Joyce Ladner Christ Chapel

You are encouraged to attend the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Lecture at Gustavus Adolphus College on Monday, January 15, 2018 from 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. in Christ Chapel.

Civil rights leader and sociologist Dr. Joyce Ladner will provide a keynote address titled, "The Civil Rights Movement, Still Marching After All These Years" which will include personal stories as a leader in the movement and reflections on work that continues to be needed.

Ladner is author of numerous articles and seven books including Tomorrow's Tomorrow: The Black Woman which was the first book published in African American Women's Studies and is now considered a classic in the field. Much of her career was spent as a professor and provost at Howard University. She has appeared on nationally syndicated radio and television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC Evening News, ABC's Nightline, and the MacNeil/Lehrer Hour.

Her career as a sociologist has been shaped through her first hand involvement with the civil rights movement in Mississippi and as a staff member that organized the March on Washington in 1963.

The event will also be live streamed and archived at
