MLK50: Where Do We Go From Here? Symposium

April 2 & 3, 2018

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.
