WHAT: Lincoln University’s Organization for Political Awareness and Office of Student Activities presents Elaine Brown’s “The Radical Martin Luther King, Jr.” .

WHEN: Friday, April 4, 2003, 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Admission: Free

WHERE: On the campus of Lincoln University, Mary Dod Brown Memorial Chapel 1570 Baltimore Pike, Lincoln University, Pa. (Southern Chester County, Pa.)

DETAILS: Elaine Brown, author, political activist and former chair of the Black Panther Party, presents a slightly different perspective on the non-violence position of slain civil rights leader Rev.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the 35th anniversary of his assassination.

Lincoln University, the nation’s first historically black university, is celebrating its sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, between April 10, 2003 and May 2004. The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) as well as computer sciences.

Lincoln has the unprecedented distinction among all colleges and universities of having two of its alumni honored with U.S. commemorative stamps. In February the U.S. Postal Service honored Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, and a 1930 Lincoln University graduate, by making him the 26th honoree in Black Heritage Commemorative Series. Last year, the U.S. Postal Service also issued a Commemorative, first class stamp for 1929 Lincoln alumnus Langston Hughes, a world-acclaimed poet.
