Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King

Wisdom for how we can move and heal our society in our time as the Civil Rights movement galvanized its own. Lucas Johnson is bringing the art and practice of nonviolence into a new century, for new generations. Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons was an original Black Power feminist and a grassroots leader of the Mississippi Freedom Summer.

A testimony to the the power of MLK as a preacher and vulnerable human being — with moving audio of him as a man at his most vulnerable and his most poignant as a preacher.

A poet and self-described literary activist, E. Ethelbert Miller attended Howard University in 1968 — the age in which Black Power was finding its voice. He has remained there ever since, observing and making sense of the trajectory of black history and culture. He pushes at the parameters within which mainstream America routinely sees what he calls "blackness."

A reminder that change means being willing to take a risk - just like Moses Wright did in Mississippi.
