As we embark on the Spring semester, we are excited to invite you to participate in our book club on a platform dedicated to exploring and discussing literature that aligns with the value of Martin Luther King Jr. as a whole person. The book club will meet monthly, and participants can expect to engage in monthly facilitated discussions on Patrick Parr’s book "The Seminarian: Martin Luther King Jr. Comes of Age" which is a must-read for anyone interested in the life and legacy of one of the greatest civil rights leaders in history. This captivating book takes you on a journey through King's formative years, providing a unique perspective on the events and experiences that shaped him into the iconic figure he is today. With its engaging storytelling and meticulous research, "The Seminarian" is a powerful tribute to a man who dedicated his life to fighting for equality and justice for all.
