April 19, 2018 – The School of Theology’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Ethical Leadership, Dr. Walter E. Fluker, has a lesson titled “Creating Space for the Other” on the website for the Black Theology Project. The knowledge base system site is a digital learning network that seeks to strengthen social movements by bridging the gap between the Academy, Church, and Community, and curates theological resources for Black Lives.

One of the project’s campaigns, MLK Global, has curated a number of global voices on the teachings of Dr. King. Their site describes the MLK Global mission “believes that Dr. King’s analysis of the underlying structures that reinforce inequality speaks to peoples across the global north & south who share a deep desire for long-overdue change. MLK Global wants to see a renewed awareness of his 5-point Economic Bill of Rights, re-envisioned for today. Economic inequalities, racism, militarism & climate change are destroying families, communities, nations and the very planet we live on. The time to fulfill Dr. King’s vision of a “radical redistribution of power” is now.”
