Thursday, January 25, 4 p.m. Benson Classroom

Martin Luther King’s Beloved Community and European Trumpism

Professor Henry J. Richardson III
Temple University
Beasley School of Law


More Information

The warmth of the Kingian Dream, through the Beloved Community, is essential to the gift of non-violent love to humankind, which the global authority of Martin Luther King continues to give. His authority and his Dream, and the strength of their invocations and vision in Europe against Trumpism, are necessary elements of wide recognition which must help define for us King’s National Holiday.

This event has been approved for the Professionalism Series.
