Below are links to sessions on “Learning From Martin Luther King’s Wisdom to Strengthen Our Movement Today” at Community of Living Traditions at Stony Point Center, during the week of January 16, 2017. Each session was about three hours long
Each of the sessions was led by three spiritually-rooted activists: Imam Al-Hajj Talib Abdur-Rashid of the Mosque of Islamic Brotherhood in Harlem; Rev. Anthony Grimes of the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Black Lives Matter; and Rabbi Arthur Waskow of The Shalom Center. Facilitator ws Rabia Harris of CLT and the Muslim Peace Fellowship.
The sessions began with Dr. King’s prophetic sermon on April 4, 1967, entitled “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.”
The conversations explored these questions:
- How are the “triplets of evil” — Racism, Militarism, Materialism — changing in their shape and function today?
- Where is the path to the “revolution of values” that Dr. King calls for?
- What links between “anti-war” and “civil rights” organizing do we need to build now in order to make this path?
