Martin Luther King Day Celebration Lecture
Thursday, January 24, 2019, 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m., Tull Auditorium
Robert M. Franklin Jr., James T. and Berta R. Laney Professor in Moral Leadership, presents “Revisiting Dr. King’s Theory of Love, Power, and Justice.”

Dr. King wrote a dissertation at Boston University focused, in part, on the thought of theologian Paul Tillich. He often carried a copy of Tillich’s “Love, Power, and Justice” in his briefcase, and drew upon it in his own, “Letter From Birmingham Jail.” Just as King continually refined these concepts during times of crisis, we should revisit King's life and thought as we face a milieu of polarization and social crisis.
