Morehouse College King Collection Series on Civil and Human Rights

Using the thirteen thousand papers of the King Collection as a foundation, the Morehouse College King Collection Series on Civil and Human Rights offers new scholarship that provides insightful overviews and analyses of Dr. King’s intellectual, theological, and activist engagement with a variety of broad themes.

 

These themes include (but are not limited to) poverty, nonviolence, the Vietnam War, capitalism, racial discrimination, education, and civil rights. Along with the thematically focused works, the series includes brief critical studies on King’s involvement with specific campaigns, such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1956–57 and the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968. Though scholarly in nature, the books are intended to be accessibly written, relatively brief, and engaging for general readers, offering overviews of King’s life and legacy through a twenty-first-century lens.
