The Spring 2012 Six O'Clock Series will offer 11 lectures on topics ranging from the assessment and treatment of autism to the cultural contributions of Northern Appalachia.

The series begins with an exploration of the contemporary relevance of Martin Luther King Jr. by attorney and professor Burrell Brown at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 30.
