Prince George’s County Memorial Library System and Prince George’s County Human Relations Commission commemorate Rev. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday with a discussion of his legacy and its influence on contemporary efforts to end voter suppression against Black Americans as part of the Voting: Democracy in Action series.
Featured speakers include Andrew Aydin, creator and co-author of the “March” series (with the late Rep. John Lewis), Andrea Blackman, Division Manager for Special Collections, Nashville Public Library (and curator of the Civil Rights Room), and Taos Wynn, a Georgia-based community organizer and director of Nonviolence 365 at The King Center. Registration is not required.
This event was funded in part with a Maryland Humanities Voices and Votes Electoral Engagement Project (VVEEP) Support Grant through the “Why it Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation” initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
