Dr. King continues to be one of the most misrepresented figures in the 20th century. His more than 12 years of political work has been systematically reduced to a "dream" and carefully-chosen sound bites by the mainstream media, writers, and historians.

Historian Prof. Manu Ampim will present the primary sources to examine the political legacy and modern distortions of Dr. King's work.
