Thetford Academy will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a Bicentennial Speaker Series presentation by Professor Derrick E. White, entitled “Making a King: The Contested Legacies of a Civil Rights Icon.” 

“Making a King” will examine how various organizations have interpreted King’s life and work in the decades after his assassination. Professor White will explore King’s socio-political philosophy in the months before his death, and how organizations such as the Institute of the Black World and the Martin Luther King Center clashed over the activist’s legacy. Finally, Professor White will review how the modern interpretation of King’s life shapes contemporary civil rights policy.

This event, free and open to the public!
