As the world pauses to celebrate the life and legacy of Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on his birthday, a national holiday, we will explore the journey of the leaders, across race and religion, who debated, protested, and collaborated on their like humanity leading the way to the historic signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. These “Acts” made tangible the lofty ideals of the American experiment: to render justice under the law a present reality for all people regardless of color, sex, or religious beliefs. Together we will follow their footsteps to determine how much more needs to be done to bend the arc of the moral universe further towards justice.

Led by an expert on theology and social justice and author of the book Prophetic Justice: Essays and Reflections on Race, Religion, and Politics, The Reverend Professor Keith Magee, Th.D., this interactive seminar will explore Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy and impact on the American Civil Rights movement. Designed to inform curiosity and future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the legislation that resulted from the movement and greater awareness of the work still required to achieve equality under the law.

The Reverend Professor Keith Magee, Th.D., is a public intellectual, theologian, and social justice scholar. He is Chair and Professor of Social Justice at Newcastle University. He is Senior Fellow in Culture and Justice, University College London. He founded the Social Justice Institute in 2014 while in post at Boston University - it remains the hub for his independent work and research. He is also the lead pastor at The Berachah Church, which has a virtual global presence. Having trained as an economist and in theology, his work reflects on the Ten Commandments as ‘public policies’, thereby exploring how they inform society through belief, culture, and economic and social justice.

Informative and thought-provoking

Our session spent the majority of our time in asking and receiving answers to challenging questions, and that was an excellent use of our time because Dr. Magee has such a depth and breadth of knowledge on the topic of racial justice from history to present day. I left with much to think about and some actions that I can take - the mark of a successful conversation.

The 45 minute discussion was thought provoking and challenging. The presentation did not fulfill the course description and was disappointing to say the least.
