U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II will hold a public conversation hosted by the Duke University Chapel on Jan. 19 at 8 p.m.
The discussion is called, "The Enduring Challenge of a Moral Economy: 50 Years After Dr. King Challenged Racism, Poverty, and Militarism." It will be moderated by the dean of the Duke University Chapel, Luke Powery.
"Through this public conversation, we have an opportunity to bring together the insights of a preacher and a politician on the present-day work toward a just, moral economy," Powery said.
The discussion, addressing the ongoing work for economic justice in America, is part of Duke’s week-long Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration as well as the Duke Chapel’s Bridge Panel series.
“Powery has been moderating conversations from people of different walks of life to talk about an issue of the common good," said James Todd, spokesperson for Duke Chapel.
