Ursuline Professor to Keynote Dr. King Memorial Luncheon
The NAACP Tri-State Conference of Idaho, Nevada & Utah and the Salt Lake City Branch of the NAACP will present Ursuline College Visiting Professor in Constitutional Law Avery Friedman as their Keynote Speaker celebrating its joint Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Luncheon on January 16, 2012.
Avery Friedman, CNN Saturday’s Legal Analyst for the past eleven years, has a weekly audience of over 3,000,000 viewers each weekend, and is an inductee in the Ohio Civil Rights Hall of Fame. The Wall Street Journal calls him a “walking reference source” on civil rights law. He has been recognized in TIME, The New York Times and USA Today as a nationally distinguished civil rights lawyer and law professor. The NAACP has called him a “true freedom fighter” and “an artist in the courtroom.”
Friedman has lectured on federal civil rights law at nearly three dozen major law schools including Stanford, Duke, Berkeley, Michigan, North Carolina, Tulane and the University of Texas. He has appeared by invitation as an expert on civil and constitutional rights by both the U.S. Senate and House subcommittees.
The Dr. King Memorial Luncheon will take place at noon at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Friedman’s address, “Secrets from Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel” will recount the historical events leading up to Dr. King’s intended remarks before his assassination twenty-four years ago and its aftermath.
