Anniversary of Martin Luther King's visit to St Paul's marked at free lunchtime talk

Dr Martin Luther King Jr, is seen as one of the most influential figures in modern worldwide history.

To mark the 50th anniversary of Dr King's address to 4,000 people at St Paul's Cathedral, this talk by Simon Carter, Head of Collections, will recount the circumstances of the visit and explore how the Cathedral became involved with the civil rights movement; the campaign for nuclear disarmament and clandestine anti-apartheid activities.

This talk is part of a series organised by the Cathedral's Collections department.

Each presentation takes an aspect of the Cathedral Collections as the starting point to illuminate and elucidate an aspect of the rich life and work of St Paul’s. These 45-minute introductions in the crypt Wren Suite are delivered by Cathedral staff and volunteers who have researched specific items from the Library, Archives or Object Collection.

The talks will endeavour to bring star objects and less well known but significant treasures to the fore as they reveal details behind the big stories in the history of St Paul’s as well as some of the less well known facets of the pursuit of the Cathedral Mission and associated activities and events.
