Anthony Cook FlyerMLK Day Lecture: "King & the Beloved Community: A Critical Approach to Community Development"

Anthony Cook
Professor of Law, Georgetown University

This talk explores the life and times of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., with an emphasis on the critical years between the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 and his assassination in 1968.  What lessons can those of us working in the field of community development learn from this critical period in American history- a time when, like today, the nation grappled with problems of race, class, war, and inequality, with no less than the future of Democracy at stake.
