To the Promised Land about Martin Luther King Jr by Michael K Honey

*Please check back for updates on rescheduling this event!*

To the Promised Land goes beyond the iconic view of Martin Luther King, Jr., as an advocate of racial harmony, to explore his profound commitment to the poor and working class and his call for "nonviolent resistance" to all forms of oppression, including the economic injustice that "takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes." "Either we go up together or we go down together," King cautioned, a message just as urgent in America today as then. To the Promised Land challenges us to think about what it would mean to truly fulfill King's legacy and move toward his vision of "the Promised Land" in our own time.

Michael Honey's six award-winning books include To the Promised Land and Going Down Jericho Road: the Memphis Strike, Martin Luther King's Last Campaign. A Guggenheim Fellow, he teaches history at the University of Washington Tacoma, and is a former Movement organizer in the South.
