MLK Commemoration VIA with Dr. Stacey Floyd-Thomas


Floyd-Thomas 2

11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 12, Cordier Auditorium


In honor of the commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Manchester University welcomes Dr. Stacey Floyd-Thomas. This lecture explores the meaning of the man, mission, and movement of King in relationship to our troubled times. As a moral theologian, religious leader and social activist, Dr. Floyd-Thomas will lecture about what can be gleaned as well as what hope may be found from King’s lifework in addressing our present need as a country and global village as we face a looming mountain of despair. An associate professor of ethics and society at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences, Floyd-Thomas's research engages broad questions of moral agency, cultural memory, ethical responsibility and social justice.
This program is sponsored by the Peace Studies Institute's Zunkel Fund and the Long Lecture Fund.

Primary organizer: Katy Gray Brown
