Scholar-activist Mike Honey is a distinguished historian and professor at U-Washington/Tacoma with 3 award-winning books linking the civil rights and labor movements. He also lived and worked for a time in Louisville with Carl and Anne Braden and the Southern Conference Education Fund (SCEF).
Honey’s latest book, Going Down Jericho Road: The Memphis Strike, Martin Luther King's Last Campaign, beautifully examines Dr. King’s radical legacy and the movement’s unfinished business. The lecture will also feature a musical performance and a slide show.
This event, the third annual Anne Braden Memorial Lecture, is presented by the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research.
