This four-hour workshop examines the political, economic, and legal conditions that brought Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr to Memphis in 1968. Topics will include the challenges of poverty, unemployment, lack of education, and the strike of the sanitation workers that propelled Memphis to the front of the Civil Rights Movement. Facing History and Ourselves will use multimedia resources to explore the impact King had on civil and human rights in the United States and what work still needs to be done to realize his “dream.” The workshop is open to educators and to the community. It is especially relevant for staff and volunteers working with community organizations that work directly with youth.
Jan. 20, 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
