In his first few weeks in in office Donald Trump has appointed a reactionary cabinet stocked with generals and billionaires; pushed for more pipelines; and attacked immigrants and refugees.

Keynote Address by Vijay Prashad: Trump’s Foreign Policy and the American Empire in Decline

Vijay Prashad is the George and Martha Kellner Chair in South Asian History and Professor of International Studies at Trinity College.  His interests include Middle Eastern politics, development economics, North-South relations, and current events.  He is the author of The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World and sixteen other books.

April 2017 is the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech Beyond Vietnam, a powerful and historic articulation of the message of the modern peace and justice movement.  We will read key excerpts from the speech at this event.
