On the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King's death, we present three programs that look at his message for us in 2018. Each program will feature a prominent visiting scholar as well as local clergy in Washington, DC who are active in work for social justice, and will focus on Dr. King's call for a "Revolution of Values." Please join us for one or all of these programs!
