Saluting Dr. King

Michael Eric Dyson, who has been called “a hip-hop
intellectual” and “a street fighter in a suit,” will be the featured speaker at the College’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance, 8:00 p.m. Thursday, January 16, in Johnston Hall. Information: Ext. 7884.

Dyson, 42, Avalon Professor in the Humanities at the University of Pennsylvania, will speak on “The Power of One” in opposing inequality, injustice, and oppression.

A challenging speaker whose style derives from his early calling as a Baptist minister, Dyson grew up in Detroit, attended Carson Newman College in Tennessee, and holds a doctorate in religion from Princeton University.

His books include I May Not Get There with You: The True Martin Luther King Jr., and the bestselling Holler If You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur.

His commentaries on American culture have been heard on most of the major news/talk shows on television and National Public Radio.
