School for Moral Courage: Upcoming Events

School for Moral Courage: Upcoming Events

Couple good things coming up the next two weekends:

Saturday, January 14, 2006, 2:30 p.m., Iowa City Library, Meeting Room A

Citizen King, a screening of the documentary illustrating a lesser-known chapter of the life of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Much is known of Dr. King's tireless efforts as a civil rights leader, but in the last five years of his life, King spoke out against the Vietnam War and became an advocate for all of America's have-nots, regardless of race. This film explores King's work during those years, which caused some to accuse him of abandoning his original mission.

Ethics in Politics: When is it compromise? When is it selling out?

An open discussion of holding ourselves, our organizations, and our leaders accountable for human rights. Part of the discussion will include consideration of candidates in 2006 county and state elections.
