Radford University will celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and promote the value of diversity when Michael Eric Dyson, University Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University, addresses the campus on Monday, April 7, at 6 p.m. in the Bondurant Auditorium. In a presentation entitled "A Beloved Community:Advancing Social Change," the renowned author, academic and cultural critic will reflect on Dr. King's legacy and life.

Dyson, named by Ebony magazine as one of the hundred most influential black Americans, is the author of sixteen books, including Holler if You Hear Me, Is Bill Cosby Right? and I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King Jr.

Originally scheduled for Jan. 22, Dyson's appearance was postponed due to inclement weather and travel complications.  For more information, email the Center for Diversity and Inclusion.
