Virginia Tech's School of Public and International Affairs and the Humanities at Virginia Tech invite the public to a talk by Corey Walker, noted scholar of African American social, political, and religious thought, and vice president, dean, and professor of religion and society at Virginia Union University.
Walker's talk, "The Sovereignty of the Imagination: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Politics of Freedom," will be held Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 2:30 p.m. in the Biocomplexity Institute Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
Walker has published broadly on African American religion and philosophy, African American history and culture, and religion and American public life.
