“The Arc of the Universe Bends toward Justice.”

From the Rev.Theodore Parker to Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr.
The nineteenth-century Unitarian minister Theodore Parker believed that the main function of a democratic government was to promote and assure fairness and justice for all people. He influenced the thinking and writing of Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In this class, we will focus on the ways these three extraordinary men created our modern understanding of the nature of justice through the beauty and power of their sermons and speeches.
