CBD 2020: The Inner Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.: Between Doubt and Commitment

October 02, 2020 | 12:30pm - 1:45pm | online

King often had to overcome his insecurities and doubts in order to inspire other people to join the struggle for civil and human rights. What can we learn from how King balanced his self-doubt with a strong commitment to change the world?

Speaker: Prof. Clayborne Carson is the founder of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute at Stanford University, where he is also the Martin Luther King Jr. Centennial Professor of History. In 1985, Coretta Scott King invited Dr. Carson to edit and publish the papers of her late husband. Under Carson’s direction, the King Papers Project has produced seven volumes of The Papers of Martin Luther King Jr.
