LINCOLN ACADEMY: Ray Anthony Shepard: The MLK You Don’t Know

Monday, January 13, 2020

Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, January 13 at 12:30 pm when Ray Anthony Shepard discusses “The MLK You Don’t Know.” Award-winning author and historiographer Ray Anthony Shepard discusses his forthcoming collective biography, A Long Time Coming: Chronicles of Six African Americans from Ona to Obama. Written in flash lines of verse, prose, and quotes, it tells the story of six African Americans’ quest to transform the United States into a multiracial democracy. Ray will share how he compressed two and a half centuries into less than 300 pages and why he chose to tell that history in free verse. In honor of MLK’s birthday, he will also read from his story poem on Martin Luther King Jr., “A Man in a Hurry.” For more information on our speaker go to: www.Biographers International Group/Podcast Episode #8 – Ray Anthony Shepard
