In Conversation With Award-Winning Author Dr. Peniel E. Joseph
Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X may have operated in very different spheres but their views converged on two key issues: the need to tackle poverty and the international nature of the Civil Rights Struggle. Those are just a few of the fascinating insights offered on Tuesday, June 30th when the award-winning scholar and author Dr. Peniel Joseph discussed his new book The Sword and The Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a Zoom conversation moderated by Haitian Roundtable board member and award-winning architect Rodney J.E. Leon.
Dr. Joseph is the Founding Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. He is also a 2016 Inductee of the Haitian Roundtable’s 1804 List. Rodney J.E. Leon is the architect of the National African Burial Ground Memorial and the United Nations Ark of Return memorial to the victims of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
