Forum: Dr. Arthur Sutherland, "The Wit and Wisdom of Martin Luther King, Jr. - Part I"

Dr. Arthur Sutherland is Associate Professor of Theology at Loyola University, Maryland, and recently won a grant from the Project on Lived Theology to support a critical commentary on “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” Dr. King is well known for his speeches and sermons—indeed, phrases like “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” have become part of our national quote book. However, there is another side to King revealed in his private letters and lesser known public addresses: his wit and wisdom. This two-week study will examine a selection of King’s writings that link the power of laughter to the work of love.
