Revolutionary love: Complete the Dream
On August 31, 1967, The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave an address at the National Conference on New Politics entitled "The Three Evils of Society." Dr. King observed,
"The deep rumblings that we hear today, the rumblings of discontent, is the thunder of disinherited masses rising from dungeons of oppressions to the bright hills of freedom. All over the world like a fever, freedom is spreading in the wildest liberation movement in history. The great masses of people are determined to end the exploitation of their races and lands. And in one majestic chorus they are singing in the world of our freedom song, 'ain't gonna let nobody turn us around."
Dr. King laid to bare three forms of violence he believed would destroy not only America, but Western Civilization: Racism, Materialism, and Militarism.
Revolutionary Love: Complete the Dream will examine Dr. King's three pillars—racism, economic injustice, and militarism—and add a fourth that speaks to our time: sexism. The schedule is divided into four parts to focus on each pillar, and assumes—as we must in this work—that these issues are inextricably connected.
