Trinity University presents its 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture speaker, Kathleen Cleaver, a human rights advocate and senior lecturer and researcher fellow at Emory University School of Law.
Kathleen Neal Cleaver has spent more of her life participating in the human rights struggle. Since 2000 Cleaver has served as the co-director of the Human Rights Research Fund, part of a network of anti-racist organizations that document violations of the human rights of U.S. citizens who challenge the racist and military policies within the United States. Cleaver is also currently a senior lecturer and research fellow at Emory University School of Law.
From 1967-71 Cleaver was the communications secretary of the Black Panther Party and the first woman member of their central committee. After sharing years of exile with her former husband Eldridge Cleaver in Algeria and France, she returned to the United States in late 1975.
The 2018 MLK Jr. Commemorative Lecture is cosponsored by Trinity University and the City of San Antonio MLK Jr. Commission.
This event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.
