Dr. Gary Dorrien presents

The Radical King: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Black Social Gospel

February 24, 2018 | 12:30pm VIP | 2pm Main Event

The Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s left a lasting impact on how our society addresses racial injustices. With noteworthy leaders such as the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the helm, the movement has influenced generations of social justice advocates. But what influenced the Civil Rights Movement?

Renowned social ethicist Gary Dorrien explores this theme in his appearance at The War Memorial. The Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary and Professor of Religion at Columbia University, Prof. Dorrien is an Episcopal priest, lifelong athlete, and the author of numerous books and articles that range across the fields of ethics, social theory, theology, philosophy, politics, and history.

Philosopher Cornel West - who appeared at The War Memorial last April - describes him as "the preeminent social ethicist in North America today."
