ACUMEN's Martin Luther King Day Talk - The Content of Character

Race & Respectability in Conflict

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote that "the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." As the nation grapples with a growing national conflict of character, Dr. King's push towards a common respect for personhood, a Christocentric embrace of difference, and a uniting bridge of American integrity -- warrant closer examination.

Join historian Dr. Shantella Sherman, political scientist Dr. Wilmer Leon, and award-winning journalist Barrington Salmon, for The Acumen Annual Dr. Martin Luther King , Jr. Day Lecture, “The Content of Character: Race & Respectability in Conflict,” exploring the many racial and social stereotypes that foster conflict within our nation, as well as methods of reconciliation and cooperation.
