Today Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an international figure and symbol for justice and human rights. His clarion call for love and equal rights resounds with people from virtually all sectors of the society, spanning a broad array of political, religious and social perspectives. Yet before he became an international icon, he was a preacher of the gospel and a local pastor. In celebrating Dr. King’s life and legacy, we seek to remember his vocation and preserve the prophetic edge that is so clear in his life work.
The Rev. Canon Dr. Kortright Davis gave the Martin Luther King, Jr. lectures on April 7-8, 2014.
