Socialist Night School: Martin Luther King, Jr.: Democratic Socialist

January 15, 2019

East Bay DSA Night School returns for the 2019 winter session with a class on the life and thought of Martin Luther King Jr.

Every year, in January and April, we commemorate the extraordinary career of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There is probably no figure in recent American history whose memory is more distorted, whose message is more sanitized, whose powerful words are more drained of content than King. A closer investigation shows that King was far more radical, especially on matters of labor, poverty, and economic justice, than we remember.

Please join us for a discussion on the radical thought of Martin Luther King, Jr.: anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, and dare we say, democratic socialist.

Accessibility: Wheelchair-accessible entrance and restrooms
