Presenter: Danson Kiplagat

To celebrate the anniversary of the March on Washington, August 28, 1963, this presentation will offer a review of Martin Luther King Jr.’s fundamental ideas and recommendations for practical action to expand civil rights for all. In particular, a video and the speaker’s analysis will focus on the inspiring and influential I Have a Dream speech given by King on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The visionary message in this speech gave moral and political depth to historical and current references to the American Dream. King pointed to an ethical pathway towards unity and justice in all civil societies around the world as well as in the United States. Topics to be discussed include King’s ideas on the beloved community, the supremacy of moral law, the necessity for purity of means to achieve righteous ends, the imperative of seeking truth, practicing non-violence and expressing love. The speaker will also discuss King’s six principles of non-violent direct action and the Pledge of Commitment to the non-violent movement. Discussion will follow the speaker’s talk.
