KU professor addresses today's political struggles in 'Letters to Martin'
In his latest book, Randal Maurice Jelks offers thoughts on 'democracy in Black America' in the form of letters to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Before becoming a civil rights activist and leader, Dr. King was a minister. It is worth remembering that for all their advocacy, he and other leaders of the movement often found in their work a spiritual and philosophical dimension, a calling to something higher and deeper.
Prof. Randal Maurice Jelks is also an ordained minister and in "Letters to Martin: Meditations on Democracy in Black America," Jelks presents meditations on the contemporary issues at the center of the current struggle over democracy in America.
