Odyssey Special Event- Taylor Branch on "MLK's Legacy- Fifty Years On"
Start Date: 3/19/2018Start Time: 6:45 PM
End Date: 3/19/2018End Time: 8:15 PM
Event Description:
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy has been understood differently by both contemporaries and historians. To the Rev. Hosea Williams, one of his chief lieutenants, Dr. King was “the militant of the [twentieth] century.” To journalist and historian Jon Meacham, he was an “architect of the 21st century,” but to King biographer, Taylor Branch, MLK was a “new [American] founding father.” Mr. Branch gives a special appearance for Odyssey with a lecture that explores King’s legacy, in the fiftieth year after his assassination in 1968.

Taylor Branch is a Baltimore-based author, public speaker, and historian, best known for his three-volume narrative history of the civil rights era, "America in the King Years." Mr. Branch lives in Baltimore with his wife. Information about his career is available on the website
