This two-day symposium will be a joint venture with the University of Memphis, Cecil B. Humphreys School of Law. The first day will be a legal symposium. A call for papers will be issued and senior legal scholars and practitioners will present. They will seek to invite either the current or a former Attorney General for a keynote.
The second day, April 3, will be hosted by the Museum and will be thought leaders and scholars discussing three – four topic areas as identified in Dr. King’s narrative. We hope to secure thought leaders and scholars that have a level of celebrity like Van Jones, Julani Cobb, Taylor Branch, Vicki Crawford and others. We hope to have a balance of historians/scholars and contemporary thought leaders.
