I have taken Acumen online classes before. This one looks interesting adventure in important literature – and relevant. In each instance, I’ve been with a small group of people interested in the topic. Works best that way. Check it out. FYI. Gerry
Welcome to the first reading in our new series on “Readings that Matter”. This series is adapted from a set of readings that Acumen’s Fellows and staff discuss on a regular basis as part of our leadership training and development.
“INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE…”
We have chosen to start with Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” because the themes are particularly relevant today. As we become more interconnected as a world, we see a growing sense of otherness and awareness of injustices. This is not only true in the United States but also across the world. Through a systematic reading and discussion of Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”with a group of people you know, you will explore his arguments, dissect his masterful use of rhetoric, and we hope, come to a better understanding of where you stand on the various ideas he shares. http://plusacumen.org/courses/readings-matter-martin-luther-kings-letter-birmingham-jail/
