Distinguished author & historian to deliver annual MLK speech

Dr. Stewart Burns will speak at the Union Institute & University's Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Lecture series. Every January a prominent MLK keynote speaker is invited to share Dr. King's legacy with the Ph.D. students and community.

Dr. Burns is a Civil Rights Movement historian and author. He has worked for many years in movements for peace and social justice, and he extols his mission to share lessons from the democratic struggles of the past to empower citizenship today and tomorrow.

His speech entitled Way out of No Way: How King's Teachings Might Help Us Overcome Our Quadruple Peril is scheduled to take place January 9, 2014 at 11:45a.m., at the NKU METS Center in Erlanger, Kentucky.

The nonprofit Union Institute & University celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and offers one of the few Ph.D. programs specializing in Martin Luther King, Jr. studies in the country. This year marks Union's ninth MLK Legacy Lecture.
