The Pratt Library's annual King Commemorative Lecture, presented by Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant.

Dr. Bryant, founder and leader of Baltimore's Empowerment Temple Church, is a third generation preacher with a 21st century approach. He is a graduate of Morehouse College, Duke University, and The Graduate Theological Foundation. Dr. Bryant is the author of four books, including World War Me, which won the African American Publishers Award.
