A Joyous Daybreak”: MLK, Civil Rights & Emancipation’s Centennial is from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Halpin-Harrison Hall, Stimpson Auditorium. “A Joyous Daybreak”: MLK, Civil Rights, and Emancipation at 100 will explore how Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., leaned on the centennial of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation to mobilize the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. Additionally, the presentation will explore the response of the Kennedy administration to King’s appeal to connect the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation to new legislation aimed at social and political equality.  For more information, please contact Jonathan Noyalas at jnoyalas01@su.edu
