When MLK and the KKK Met in Raleigh: Jason Miller

February 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Tompkins 123, United States

Sharing never-before-seen photos recently recovered from his archival research, Professor of English Jason Miller contextualizes Martin Luther King, Jr.’s only appearance at NC State University, in July 1966, when the KKK rallied in downtown Raleigh. This intentional counter-protest stole the headlines and continues to inform the fact that few in the NC State community even know about Dr. King’s appearance at Reynolds Coliseum. Dr. King’s speech is a stark reminder of the ways violence, anger and hatred surrounded him in the last years of his life.
