ASU Project Humanities Presents “Vital Voices: The King We Don’t Know” Webinar Tickets
Jan 18 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
ASU Project Humanities Presents "Vital Voices: The King We Don't Know" Webinar

In an April 2018 NPR interview on assessing the Civil Rights Movement’s iconic legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 50 years after this death, Dr. Charles McKinney, professor of history at Rhodes College in Memphis (TN), warns against the “cotton-candy version of King” that too many Americans harbor at the expense of looking fully and more closely at the more radical King. Dr. McKinney further contends that “there’s a danger in the way King’s image has been enshrined in our country’s ethos, and it should not be ignored.” The occasion of this MLK Holiday is an opportunity look at the King that we don’t know and/ or don’t often talk about while we paint him as a romanticized “Black Santa Claus” of love and non-violence.

As a Vital Voices, this format invites attendees to bring with them a 2-3 minute share: poem, passage, speech, photograph, song or story. Co-facilitated by Project Humanities Founding Dr. Lester and Rhodes College professor of history, Dr. Charles McKinney.

***Interested attendees must RSVP via Eventbrite to receive the Zoom Webinar link and password 24 hours before event.***
