Duke University Chapel will host a public conversation with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and the Rev. William J. Barber II. The discussion, "The Enduring Challenge of a Moral Economy: 50 Years After Dr. King Challenged Racism, Poverty, and Militarism," was originally scheduled for Jan. 19 but was postponed due to a looming budget vote that prevented Sanders from traveling.
Tickets are required for entry. All tickets that were previously issued for Jan. 19, including those being held at the Duke Box Office, will be honored for the rescheduled event. Duke will not issue any new tickets.
Free parking is available in the Bryan Center Parking Garage at 125 Science Drive, with overflow parking in the Chemistry Lot at the intersection of Towerview Road and Circuit Drive. ADA parking is available in the Bryan Center surface lot. Public parking will not be available in front of the chapel and access to Chapel Drive will be limited around the time of the event.
The event was to be part of Duke's 2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration and Duke Chapel's Bridge Panel series, which seeks to connect people from disparate walks of life to discover shared pathways toward the community of God.
For those who can't attend, the chapel's website will stream the discussion live.
