In MLKs Footsteps: Education as a Civil Right
Posted on 5/31/2013

Together with WNYC’s Peabody Award-winning host Brian Lehrer, Jami will lead a dynamic forum with academics, education experts, and historians – including a plaintiff involved in the historic Brown v. Board of Education case – about the evolution of the civil rights struggle around education since King’s time, and what’s left to be done in education reform. 

The invigorating afternoon will feature a musical performance by folk/blues songwriter Toshi Reagon, a musical performance from the Manhattan Theatre Lab and its ninth grade chorus, and short tribute speeches to Dr. King from the Manhattan Country School eighth graders.

@lparkernyc And thanks for reading. Good will only come of the sad #PistoriusTrial if we talk honesty and openly about the issues.
@lparkernyc & in the USA we are terrified of crime. But crime is down. A person is FAR more likely to die in a car crash than be murdered.
