 “There is no greater power on earth
than an idea whose time has come.”

We will study the words of MLK during the 1960’s, a time of great civil unrest in the United States. Along with MLK’s words, we will examine the responses from the pulpit. Central to our discussion will be the question:  What is the morally correct road to take in the face of unjust laws?   Copies of MLK’s “ Letter from Birmingham Jail” and his “ I Have a Dream” speech will be distributed during class, but feel free to examine them on your own beforehand.
Note: This is a stand-alone course and open to the community.  
* Please bring your bag lunch to class
