Speaker: Dr. Karen Bishop Morris

Topic: A Thousand-Mile Journey: 55 Years of Fair Housing History and Hope

Description: Much has been written about Dr. King’s legacy with respect to jobs and voting, but far less so regarding his significant role leading up to the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act. This event is a unique opportunity to reveal King’s vision for desegregated housing, as well as review the complex path to legislation that is still debated for its inherent restrictions and challenges.
