Comment on this story on the

‘How did Martin Luther King Jr change America, 1955-2019?’

Talk by Professor Tony Badger (President Historical Association )

Martin Luther King’s non-violent direct action enabled an economically  and powerless African American minority to wrest change from a determined white majority in the American South. The reasons for King’s success before 1968 highlight the reasons why African Americans have found it difficult to replicate that success since 1968. The lecture attempts to draw up a balance sheet of civil rights gains and losses in today’s America. Did the first African American president extend those gains? Have those gains been eroded by the Trump administration?

On Tuesday 9 April at 7.30 pm at Ealing Green  Church, W5 5QT. Members free: visitors £5
