Jaffrey-Rindge MLK Celebration

OUR GREAT WORLD HOUSE: PLENTY GOOD ROOM

Monday, January 18, 2021, 5:00-6:00pm

The Jaffrey-Rindge MLK Committee and Keene State College Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning present a Live Virtual Event featuring Dr. Walter Earl Fluker in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2021, January 18, 5-6 p.m.  Dr. Fluker is Martin Luther King Jr. Professor Emeritus of Ethical Leadership at Boston University School of Theology.  He will address the quest for democratic space in Dr. King’s vision of the great world house.

 In his Nobel Peace Prize lecture, Martin Luther King Jr. evoked the image of a great “world house” in which we have to live together – a family “separated in ideas, culture, and interests who, because we can never again live without each other, must learn, somehow, in this one big world, to live with each other.”  At a time when ethics has been at the forefront of public discussion, Dr. Fluker’s expertise is especially timely.
