Taylor Branch to Dallas

The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture will host its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration symposium on Monday evening, January 21, 2008 from 7:00 to 8:45 p.m. at The Belo Mansion. Central Dallas Ministries is very proud to be one of the community organizations co-sponsoring the event.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning author Taylor Branch will be the distinguished speaker. Branch's epic trilogy, America in the King Years, won him the coveted prize.

The title of Branch's lecture for the evening: "An Audacious Faith: The Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr."

Following his presentation, our own Gerald Britt will be one of the panelists leading a discussion of Dr. King's legacy and Mr. Branch's commentary. It will be a wonderful evening in honor of Dr. King.

The Belo Mansion is located at 2101 Ross Avenue on the Arts District side of Downtown Dallas.

Admission is by reservation only and costs $20 per seat, with school teachers receiving a nice discount at $10 per seat.
