MLK Jr. Epistles and Prophets

In observance of the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Trinity Church Wall Street has produced a free video curriculum for use by individuals or group settings. Following is a description from Trinity’s MLK Jr.: Epistles and Prophets:


April 4th, 2018 marks 50 years since the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In observance of the deep and lasting impact of Dr. King’s ministry, Trinity is offering the video curriculum below for use by individuals or in group education settings.

The speaker series, “Three Epistles on Race in America,” explores contemporary black/white relationships using writings that, while perhaps lesser known than King’s famous “I have a dream” oratory, resonate powerfully today. The speakers are New York City journalist Errol Louis, New York University professor and poet Fred Moten, and Trinity’s Vicar, Phil Jackson. Hear their challenging examinations of three civil-rights era letters from Dr. King, James, Baldwin, and Thomas Merton, and share them with friends in your community.

The interview segment features Trinity’s Director of Justice and Reconciliation, Winnie Varghese, in conversation with civil rights icon and public theologian Ruby Sales. Together, they explore King’s prophetic voice, and look for hope in history.
