University of Baltimore to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Poor People’s Campaign with Dr. Lenneal Henderson and Marc Steiner

The University of Baltimore is hosting public events to revisit the Campaign’s themes of justice, freedom, and jobs in light of 1968’s events as well as issues affecting today’s “forgotten” people: successors to the multiracial coalition that Dr. King assembled and inspired in his last year. This event brings together two participants in the Poor People’s Campaign for a discussion: distinguished professor emeritus of UB’s College of Public Affairs Dr. Lenneal Henderson and the Center for Emerging Media’s Marc Steiner. 

Events will take place in UB’s Town Hall, located on the ground floor of the Learning Commons, on the corner of Mount Royal and Maryland Ave. (The Town Hall auditorium is the former law school building’s Moot Courtroom, facing Gordon Plaza.)
