Date Topics
March 13, 2013 (Wednesday) Liberation Theology and Public Policy

Liberation Theology is derived from Jesus’ mission and purpose as described in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 4:18,19). Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. exemplified this same mission and purpose in bringing about positive social change in the United States during the second half of the twentieth century. This lecture will explore the connections between the liberation motif seen Jesus’ ministry and that of Rev. King. By focusing on the educational crisis occurring in many inner cities, the lecture will delineate ways in which Liberation Theology can be an effective means of personal and social liberation today.
