Burrow is a professor of Christian Thought and of Theological Social Ethics at Christian Theological Seminary.

Half a century after some of its most important moments, the Civil Rights era is a rich vein for assessment. In his book, "A Child Shall Lead Them: Martin Luther King, Jr., Young People, and the Movement," Burrow turns his attention to a less investigated but critically important byway in this powerful story: the role of children and young people in the Civil Rights Movement.

He discusses the role young people played and what they saw and did that their elders were unable to envision, revealing the surprising power of youth to change the world.

Books will be available for sale and signing.
