Professor Brian Ward of Northumbria University assesses the life and legacies of Martin Luther King on the eve of the 50th anniversary of his assassination in Memphis in April 1968.

He will be discussing Dr King’s changing sense of his role in a global struggle for peace, justice and equal opportunity. This talk will pay particular attention to his impact on British race relations and politics, and on the ways in which King and the Civil Rights movement have been memorialised in Britain and the US since his death.
