Is MLK's Dream Still Alive?

January 20, 2005

This election season, African-Americans like Barack Obama and Condoleezza Rice rose to the heights of the American political system, but 1.4 million African-American men (13% of the black male population) were ineligible to vote because of their involvement in the criminal justice system. This begs the question: "Is Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream still alive?" Please join us at the Law School for a vigorous British Parliamentary style debate as we think critically about Dr. King's contribution and legacy to our nation. The British Parliamentary style debate is modeled after the British House of Commons and is characterized as being lively and audience-oriented. Our debaters include faculty and students arguing for and against the house's proposition, so please come out and cheer for your side as a participatory audience member. Sponsored by the Black Law Students Association, Duke Law Republicans, and Duke Law Democrats.
