Where Do We Go From Here? Martin Luther King’s Still Unanswered Question

As King advised late in his life: 'We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation. This may well be mankind's last chance to choose between chaos and community.'

Lecture Description

Although King warned about our alternative futures — “chaos or community” — Carson explains how we have failed to recognized the urgency of the question he raised in his final book. Although the question contains only six words, Carson suggests that it is deceptively difficult. How did we get to “here”? Who are “we”? How do we avoid chaos and move toward building a global community?
