“If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values — that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
To honor Dr. King’s legacy the Museum presents an interfaith discussion that focuses on the relationship between spiritual practice and social change. Leaders from Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and Muslim communities will discuss the lessons of justice and equality that inspire their own activism.
This program is dedicated to the memory of Carolyn Goodman, who became a nationally prominent civil rights advocate and social justice activist after her son Andrew, along with two other young civil rights workers, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney, was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan in Mississippi in 1964.
