Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Celebration

Join Leonard C. McKinnis II, Assistant Professor of African American Religious and Black Studies for this year’s lecture. This talk considers the concept of “the rebel” as a constitutive idea in the religious thought and practice of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. It explores the religious roots that frames King’s philosophy and the way that such framing compels King to live a life grounded in revolt.
