1968 and Martin Luther King, Jr.: Race, Class and Disobedience

  • McCarthy Center Forum 100 State Street Framingham, MA, 01702 United States (map)

Alex Gourevitch, Brown University

Come hear Alex Gourevitch, Associate Professor of Political Science at Brown University, discuss the radicalism of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s civil disobedience. King was no moderate. Assassinated while supporting a major strike, King is best seen as part of the 1968 revival of a long tradition of mass law-breaking that we can trace backwards through a hundred years of labor radicalism.
