Spring Book Group: “The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation” by Anna Malaika Tubbs

Fridays, May 17, 24, 31 and June 7

12-1:30 PM, Taylor Room

Join us for a book discussion with the Rev. Dawn Stegelmann. This four-week series features stories about the mothers who raised and shaped three of the most well-known leaders of the Civil Rights Movement—Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and James Baldwin.  Born at the beginning of the 20th Century, Alberta King, Louise Little and Berdis Baldwin lived and raised their families amid Jim Crow laws and the struggle for racial justice. They taught resistance and a fundamental belief in the worth, dignity and respect of Black people in the face of prejudices and discrimination toward their loved ones and communities.

This series is being offered by Saint Luke’s TOUR Task Force—Transforming Our Understanding of Race. This initiative is about the parish’s commitment to live into our Baptismal promise to “strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.”
