In recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr's visit to South Bend in October of 1963, Pulitzer Prize winning author and public speaker Taylor Branch will speak on the Notre Dame campus.
Mr. Branch is best known for his landmark trilogy on the civil rights era, America in the King Years. He has returned to civil rights history in his latest book, The King Years: Historic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement (2013). A book signing session will follow Mr. Branch's lecture.
This presentation is open to the public.
