The Radical King and the Quest to Change America

Today MLK is celebrated for his 'dream' of a just America, but by the end of his career King was calling for a "radical reconstruction" of the United States. What compelled the transformation of King's ideas and what do they tell us about our society today? Join the Rothko Chapel for our livestream 2021 Annual MLK Birthday Celebration featuring Princeton University professor of African-American Studies Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor who will engage these questions in hopes of unlocking the ideas and strategies necessary to enact effective and lasting change the United States.
