This year marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's assassination. On April 3, the night before he was killed, King told the crowd in Memphis, "the choice is no longer violence or nonviolence; it's nonviolence or existence." Dr. Roger Barnes, UIW Professor of Sociology and Chair of Sociology and Criminal Justice, will consider the ideas and events which formed Dr. King in the way of nonviolence, which he called "the love that does justice."

“Let me say that if you are tired of demonstrations, I am tired of demonstrating. I am tired of the threat of death. I want to live.” Martin Luther King Jr., in Chicago during the campaign for open housing, Aug. 17, 1966 The threat would be fulfilled. Martin Luther King Jr. would be dead in less than two years.
