Extending King’s legacy

Michael Eric Dyson

In a speech that quoted extensively from the works of figures from Martin Luther King Jr. to Kanye West, Michael Eric Dyson challenged a University audience to extend King’s legacy to fight new types of bigotry, including bigotry against the young. Dyson, author, MSNBC political commentator, and Georgetown professor, presented the MLK Commemorative Address Jan. 27. Photo and video highlights from the event are available at www.rochester.edu/news/photos/dyson.
