@sbuhistory alum Dr. Larry Spruill coming to speak on #MLK and Photojournalism at the Wang Center on Thurs, April 5th at 4:00PM #ProvostsLecture @RobbinsSBU #MLK50

Larry Spruill is a senior assistant professor of history at Morehouse College. He received a PhD in American History from Stony Brook in 1983. His dissertation, “Southern Exposure, Photojournalism and the Civil Rights Movement,” remains a seminal work. Spruill initiated the

Civil Rights Era Educational Database (CREED), a national movement to preserve civil rights photographs at risk of being discarded.

Martin Luther King Jr. used photojournalism and orchestrated dramatic nonviolent conflict as strategic protest weapons. Highlighting select photos, this lecture narrates how King’s mastery of photography and publicity enables

digital-age Americans to re-evaluate King not merely as a “dreamer” but as a radical voice for the unfinished goals of the Founding Fathers.
