The Edward Cadbury Centre for the Public Understanding of Religion warmly invites you to this special public lecture, given by Rev Dr Barbara Reynolds.

  • Speaker: Rev Dr Barbara Reynolds

This new memoir-cum biography of Coretta Scott King explores her life with Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights Revolution era and her continuing journey in support of civil rights after her husband’s murder. The event is a commemoration of her life and also marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death.

This talk will be of huge interest to anyone interest in the history of the civil rights movement and will demonstrate that Coretta Scott King deserves to be remembered in history as a champion of the cause in her own right.
