“The Night Drive” talks to panel that explores King as an ancestor with a complex and powerful legacy.
To explore Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for the revolutionary spirit he embodied, our guests recall the acts of resistance that colored the complex American leader’s journey to a haloed icon status.
Liberal, exceptional, radical and charismatic—the brilliant theologian has been labeled it all and more by examiners of his transformative platform. The Night Drive’s dialogue highlights his position within a dynamic American Civil Rights movement and how his work reverberated throughout the world. Discussants of the podcast celebrate King’s roots in the traditional Black Church while denouncing the scrubbed-clean summary of his life that is now distributed to the masses and reclaim him as a powerful ancestor of the diaspora.
