A free speaker series in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday from Trinity Church Wall Street, “Going Beyond the Dream: Three Epistles on Race in America,” on Sunday, January 7, 14, and 21 at 10 AM, will explore contemporary black/white relationships using writings that, while perhaps lesser known than King’s famous March on Washington oratory, resonate powerfully today. Errol Louis, journalist and host of NY1’s Inside City Hall, begins the series with a reading from Dr. King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail (January 7). Fred Moten, poet and NYU professor, speaks the following week on James Baldwin’s A Letter from a Region in My Mind (January 14). Finally, The Reverend Phillip A. Jackson, vicar of Trinity Church Wall Street, discusses Thomas Merton’s Letters to a White Liberal (January 21).
