Clayborn Temple's In This Place speaker series is a way to build relationships and have authentic conversations around restoration, as well as the social, racial, and economic injustice that has plagued the city of Memphis.
The final event in the series will take place on Friday, April 5, 2019, from 6:30 p.m.–9:00 p.m. at Clayborn Temple (294 Hernando Street, Memphis, Tennessee 38126).
This month, the organization welcomes Reverend Dr. James M. Lawson Jr., civil rights activist and university professor, back to Clayborn Temple to engage Memphians in a conversation about the future of Memphis. As one of the most important strategists of the 20th century, Rev. Lawson will share the stories of his work, how it applies to Memphis today, and what communities can do to ensure a bright future for all across race, class, and location.
Attendees will also engage in facilitated small group conversations about their own experiences and what they can do individually and collectively to work for an equitable Memphis.
This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
