Gar will speak at Christ Church Cambridge on May 20th to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech at the same location.
America, King feared, was being both wounded and corrupted by what was happening 9,000 miles away in Vietnam; so he came to Cambridge to issue a new call, one as important in some ways as his I Have a Dream speech, one that would link the civil rights and antiwar and antipoverty workers across the nation in a new common crusade for justice, equality, and peace.
But why Cambridge? And what did King say? What did he hope to achieve?
On Monday, May 20th, at 7PM, join Harvard professor Lani Guinier, co-founder of Vietnam Summer Gar Alperovitz, and State Representative Byron Rushing, a legendary civil rights and antiwar legislator here in Massachusetts in an intimate conversation as they discuss When Martin Luther King Came to Cambridge .

The Monadnock Summer Lyceum has a long history of supporting free speech and open debate. Its forerunner, the Peterborough Lyceum, was founded in 1829 by the Reverend Abiel Abbot. Despite his traditional Andover/Harvard education, Abiel Abbot refused to condemn unorthodox opinion and preached a message of tolerance. Peterborough renewed its commitment to free speech in 1970 with the creation of the Monadnock Summer Lyceum, held in the same original historic structure. The Lyceum is known as "a feast for the thoughtful" and features prominent speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines who discuss topics of importance to our time. Speakers in the past have included such notables as John Kenneth Galbraith, Madeleine Kunin and Jamaica Kincaid.
