Continuing the Legacy: Civil Rights Struggles in the 21st Century It's an unbelievably long shadow to live beneath, but as the eldest son of Martin Luther King Jr., the United States' singularly most important civil rights leader, Martin Luther King III has stepped it up in recent years by tackling the difficult racial and economic issues plaguing our times. An outspoken proponent of largely liberal causes, such as union rights and rights for the poor, King took a turn toward Florida earlier this year in protest of mandatory minimum prison sentences, especially in the face of uneven enforcement of the state's "stand your ground" laws. The Winter Park Institute welcomes the leader for a discussion on keeping his father's dream alive in real time. 7:30 pm Thursday; Rollins College, Knowles Memorial Chapel, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park; free; 407-691-1995; rollins.edu/wpi.
