Khalil Gibran Muhammad: In MLK’s Footsteps

January 12, 2012 7:18 PM
Where: Brooklyn Museum
When: The live event on Jan. 15 has reached capacity but excerpts from the program will air on “The Brian Lehrer Show on Monday, Jan. 16 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

I’m really looking forward to the sixth annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration at the Brooklyn Museum. It’s an afternoon dedicated to the idea that the ongoing fight for equal education is part of King’s legacy. Although the afternoon will include a variety of programming including live performances from artists like Toshi Reagon, I’m most looking forward to a conversation between Brian Lehrer and Touré, a writer and television host who wrote ”Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?

Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Ph.D. is the director of the Schomburg Center For Research in Black Culture. He was named one of he Crain’s New York Business “40 Under 40″ in 2011.

More My New York…
