Creative Maladjustment: Martin Luther King and the Poetics and Politics of Freedom

One-day symposiumbrings together multidisciplinary scholars and artists for critical reflection on the artistry and politics of Dr. King, as well as his enduring influence in the world of music, literature, theology, philosophy, ethics, and of course, politics.   Since 2013 marks the fiftieth anniversary of three iconic texts in King’s body of work, namely “I Have a Dream Speech,” “Eulogy to the Martyred Children,”  and “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” this program engages the “soul sonic force” of King’s radical artistry.  The point here is not to simply meditate on King’s political legacy but to consider seriously how his political work and artistic vision can move us toward the creation of a truly beloved community. Harrison/Small Special Collections Library Auditorium.
