The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Lecture

Eboo Patel Lecture Series

Please Note: Due to overwhelming interest,  registration for this event is now closed. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Kevin McGee at kmcgee@uts.columbia.edu or by phone at 212-280-1590

In the first of three lectures named for great figures associated with Union Theological Seminary, visiting guest lecturer Dr. Eboo Patel will look at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and work as an interfaith leader.  Dr. King is of course widely known as a civil rights pioneer and a  symbol of nonviolence.  What is commonly missed is the central role that  religious diversity played in his formation and imagination. Dr. Patel will highlight the role that other faith traditions played in Dr. King’s spiritual formation, trace the interfaith themes in Dr. King’s sermons, and make a case that Dr. King’s legacy as an interfaith leader has great relevance to our nation at this historical moment. This lecture will also  serve as a book launch for Dr. Patel’s Sacred Ground: Pluralism, Prejudice and the Promise of America.
