Fifty years after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., progress on civil rights often seems stalled, and the “dream” of the late civil rights leader as distant as ever. How can people of faith and good conscience make this anniversary more than “just a commemoration?” How can people from different backgrounds and origins unite around a moral center that strives for justice? Join faith leaders, activists, academics, and the Moral Mondays community of Memphis for this vital conversation moderated by Jonathan Judaken, Professor, Rhodes College.
