Call for Proposals

Spirituality, Spiritual Mentoring, and Social Transformation the Life and Thought of Martin Luther King Jr, Coretta Scott King, and Howard Thurman
When Martin Luther King Jr. was a doctoral student at Boston University, Howard Thurman was Dean of Marsh Chapel at BU. Boston was a site that deepened King and Thurman’s mentor-student relationship and also served as the site where Martin met Coretta Scott while she studied at the Boston Conservatory. Coretta, at the time a committed feminist and anti-war activist, became King’s wife and partner in the struggle for justice. As the AAR returns to Boston, we invite papers that explore the life and thought of Martin Luther King Jr, Coretta Scott King, and Howard Thurman around the themes of spirituality, spiritual mentorship, and social transformation.
