“MLK Jr Versus Black Nationalism: The Unfortunate Fragmentation of the Civil Rights Movement” will be the subject of a lecture at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 16, in the Urbana University Swedenborg Memorial Library, 579 College Way. The event and parking are free.
Ryan Enlow, assistant professor of Political Science at Urbana University, will compare and contrast the “Letter from Birmingham Jail” and the “Ballot or the Bullet.” He will discuss the change in both rhetoric and support for the Civil Rights movement following the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, creating what he calls the “unfortunate fragmentation of the Civil Rights movement.”
Enlow holds a BA and an MA in Political Science from Eastern Kentucky University. He has done graduate work in Public Administration at Wright State University. Political theory and ideology, constitutional law, and the American founding are his primary areas of emphasis. He serves as department chair for Behavioral Sciences at Urbana University.
