Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? 2008-2024 The Road Ahead for Justice Work
In the final book before his tragic assassination, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. warned America of the social chaos to come without a revolution of our values. Left unchecked, America’s great evils: racism, poverty, and militarism, would lead the country down a dark path. In this compelling webinar, Dr. Lewis Brogdon will draw on King’s work to provide context into this turbulent historical period and assess the state of a nation grappling with war, poverty, attacks against CRT and DEI, losses in the Supreme Court, mass shootings, partisan tribalism, and Christian nationalism. Special attention will be given to his work with the United Nation’s Permanent Forum for People of African Descent as a sign of hope and a new resource, America on the Brink: Musings on Politics, Racism, and Religion, published by The Institute of Black Church Studies.
