    Lafayette Veterans Memorial Building


    In the iconic photo of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination at Memphis’s Lorraine Motel, a figure kneels beside him, attempting to stem the bleeding with a borrowed towel. Little known is that this person, a member of the Invaders, a “black power” activist group, was also an undercover Memphis police officer. This mysterious figure is Lita’s father. Lita will share the gripping story of her father’s undercover career in her book, “THE KNEELING MAN: My Father’s Life as a Black Spy Witnessing MLK’s Assassination.” She will also discuss the realities of life as a black man in the 60s and 70s. And she will share how she came to terms with her father’s secret past.

    Please join us for breakfast and this engaging speaker. No RSVP is required.
