2024 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration:


About Dr. Clayborne Carson:


Dr. Carson has devoted his professional life to the study of Martin Luther King, Jr,, and the human rights movements inspired by King, Mohandas K. Gandhi, and other visionaries. Dr. Carson is the author of the award-winning book, In Struggle: SNCC and the Black Awakening of the 1960s, which remains the definitive study of the courageous activists and organizers who challenged the strongholds of segregation. In 1985, Mrs. Coretta Scott King chose Dr. Carson to edit and publish a definitive multi-volume edition of her late husband’s speeches, sermons, correspondences, publications, and unpublished writings. In addition to his numerous books and scholarly articles, Carson has also reached broader audiences as a senior advisor to the Eyes on the Prize series and his contributions to two dozen subsequent documentaries. Dr. Carson founded Stanford’s Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute in 2005 to disseminate King-related educational resources to a global audience. After retiring as the King Institute’s Director, Carson has continued his online educational efforts by establishing The World House Project to collaborate with other human rights advocates to realize King’s vision of a global community in which all people can ‘learn somehow to live with each other in peace.’


This event is hosted by OHIO Lancaster and OHIO Southern and funded by OHIO Regional Higher Education as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.
