Lawrence Dunbar Reddick was an African American scholar, historian, and activist, and was named the second curator of the Schomburg Collection of Negro Literature after Arturo Schomburg’s death in 1939. In 1959, Reddick wrote Crusader without Violence: A Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr., the first profile of the young leader before his rise to global prominence as a civil rights icon.
Join us as we celebrate the 60th Anniversary Edition of Crusader without Violence as it returns to circulation with new biographical details on Reddick, and a special introduction by Dr. Derryn Moten, professor of history and department chair at Alabama State University.
This program coincides with the official opening of Crusader: Martin Luther King Jr. in the Latimer Edison Gallery.
FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED
Events are free and open to all, but due to space constraints registration is requested. We generally overbook to ensure a full house.
