La Crosse to celebrate the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s radical legacy Monday
As the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day approaches, Twin Cities-based author and professor Duchess Harris said it’s important to consider the famous racial equality advocate through a less sanitized lens.
Harris, who chairs the American studies department at Macalester College in St. Paul, will be the keynote speaker at the La Crosse Community Annual Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at 7 p.m. Monday in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Main Theatre. Her speech, entitled “Chaos or Community: Fifty Years with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” will discuss King’s legacy of encouraging people to search for community over existing in chaos.
