THE MISSION OF THE CENTER
The Center for the Study of Transformative Lives exists to inspire young persons and public audiences through the study of individuals who have made a difference in the world—persons of conscience, creativity, courage, and compassion who have advanced human rights, equality, and personal and societal flourishing. Through teaching, research, and public programming the Center serves as a place to study and honor exemplars from past and present in their context in search of sorely needed wisdom for today and tomorrow.
KING IN THE WILDERNESS
A special film screening
The Center for the Study of Transformative Lives is excited to present a special screening of King in the Wilderness, a new HBO film by Peter Kunhardt, centered on the last years of Martin Luther King Jr. This screening is in conjunction with a panel discussion featuring the film's executive producer Trey Ellis, NYU Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Lisa Coleman, and Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Levering Lewis.
This free event is presented as part of the new SKIRBALL TALKS series, and is co-sponsored by the NYU Office of Global Inclusions, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation, NYU Tisch, and NYU Steinhardt.
The event will be held on Monday, April 9th, 2018, at 6:30pm.
