OUR WORK

Stay woke: Radical King Political Education event

In the tradition of New Orleans freedom schools, we hosted a popular education event on the radical legacy of King with the aim of asking, instead of praising or criticizing: why did King have such a radical shift? The hope was to examine King’s political development, his naming of the three evils of society (racism, militarism, and materialism), within the context of our current political moment–pushing where we, too, might make a more radical shift.
