Stanford University professor Clayborne Carson, Ph.D. was personally selected by Coretta Scott King to publish and edit her late husband’s personal papers and teaches a course about King called «American Prophet: The Inner Life & Global Vision of Martin Luther King, Jr.»

Many history books tell us that King was a civil rights leader who advocated for peaceful protest and made inspirational speeches. But what was he really thinking and feeling during the various campaigns in which he participated? How did he even become a civil rights leader in the first place? Was he really as confident about his methods as we think? Professor Carson will shed light on these and many other questions based on his research and scholarship.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information call (313) 494-5800.
