Martin Luther King Jr. – Dr. Brandon Terry
Smithsonian Associates, Interview Series
Welcome to the Not Old Better Show, I’m your host Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode number 314
As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living, series, our guest today is Brandon Terry. Dr. Brandon Terry is a distinguished Assistant Professor of African and African American Studies and Social Studies at Harvard University. Dr. Terry recently won the Best Paper award from the Foundations of Political Theory section of the American Political Science Association and the Alex Willingham Best Political Theory Paper Award from the National Conference of Black Political Scientists.
Today on The Not Old Better Show we’ll be talking with Dr. Brandon Terry about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s political legacy. We know Martin Luther King, Jr. for his call to action, his passion, and rhetoric, and as an almost-mythic figure of consensus and conciliation. But has this popular interpretation overshadowed some of his most mature thoughts on other topics, such as Dr. King’s ethical and political thought, and Dr. King’s embrace of radical challenges facing America, even today.
