King and The Christian Century

Something to meditate on this Sunday: The Christian Century was at the front of using faith as a medium to drive society toward racial reconciliation in its publications circa 1960. My students read MLK JRs Letter from a Birmingham Jail which was first published here; I think back to Du Bois’s Will the Church Remove the Color Line?, which too was published in The Christian Century in 1931.

The Christian Century published a nice essay regarding King’s work, here.
