MCISA presents MLK '65 to '68 Film Series: The Cause and Effect

Through select films, campus engagement/promotions, and social media campaigns we put a critical lens on the events and people that would impact Dr. King before the pivotal years of 1965 and 1968, his evolving stance within that timeframe, the eventual outcomes from that turbulent period and the lingering impact left on the civil rights movement and American society.
