The School of Arts & Sciences invites you to join us to kick off our Contested Spaces: Race, Nation, and Conflict programming with a celebration of the life and contributions of the Reverend Wyatt Tee Walker. From Chief of Staff for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to Executive Director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to the largest single developer of affordable housing in New York City, Reverend Walker held many pivotal roles in contesting racially defined spaces. This Symposium will include a sneak peek into the materials he donated to the University of Richmond, a panel discussion on his contributions, as well as a keynote lecture centered on the Poor People’s Campaign, delivered by Reverend Joseph Evans.
