Taylor Branch Presents at Teaching Center Event

MLK LunchOn Friday, January 30, in the Massey Boardroom, the Teaching Center partnered with Belmont University’s Martin Luther King Committee to sponsor a lunch discussion entitled “For Students of Freedom: Taylor Branch on Teaching, Storytelling, and the Civil Rights Movement.”  The guest presenter, Taylor Branch, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and author of, among other works, one of the great epic histories of the postwar United States–his trilogy of America in the King Years. Branch also conducted an extensive oral history project with President Bill Clinton while he was in office. For the lunch discussion, Mr. Branch joined Belmont’s faculty to talk about storytelling and history as teaching method and practice.
