University of Baltimore to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Poor People’s Campaign with Dr. Gordon Mantler
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. The first of these events is a lecture and discussion with Dr. Gordon Mantler, author of Power to the Poor: Black-Brown Coalition & the Fight for Economic Justice, 1960-1974, facilitated by 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.)
