Colloquy Downeast: Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.: In His Own Words.

Event Type: Colloquy Downeast
Date: 2/3/2020
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
Description:
 It has been just over 50 years since the assassination of theologian and civil rights movement leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., on April 4, 1968, at the age of 39. This colloquy will introduce
participants to Dr. King’s philosophy and discuss his enduring legacy in a close reading of his written words. We will focus on the original writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr drawing primarily from the collected works found in A Testament of Hope edited by James M. Washington (1986) and The Radical King edited by Cornel West (2015). In each of the four sessions participants will read and discuss selected writings organized chronologically. We will reflect on the evolution of Dr. King’s philosophy. While examining the content and artistry of his words we will also discuss his legacy within the context of the current American political environment.
