2019 Fall Racial Justice Breakfast

Tuesday, October 22nd, 8:00-10:00 a.m.
Christ Church Cathedral Undercroft



Opening Remarks: Taylor Branch

Branch imageOver the course of his storied career, author and historian Taylor Branch has won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Dayton Literary Peace Prize Lifetime Achievement Award, and a National Humanities Medal. His landmark narrative history of the Civil Rights Era, America in the King Years, required more than 24 years of intensive research as Branch sought to illuminate not only the life of the man, but also the times in which he lived. 

Branch also offers an online seminar from the University of Baltimore built around The King Years and other texts. He began his career in 1970 as a staff journalist for The Washington MonthlyHarper’s, and Esquire. He holds honorary doctoral degrees from over a dozen colleges and universities. Currently, he is at work on a new book about race in America.
