Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel
The Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel – the world’s most prominent religious memorial to Dr. King – was dedicated in 1978 under the presidency of Dr. Hugh Morris Gloster.
The purpose of the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel is to teach excellence, ethics, equality and engagement. It is to demonstrate the interdisciplinary foundations of a learned ecumenical Christian ministry for the world; to create spiritual realization through value- and virtue-centered theologically based faith; and to inspire the communitarian development of servant scholars as visionary human rights revolutionists and social gospel activists coming from a place of Gandhian nonviolence and political personalism.
Being a Moral Cosmopolitan
Dr. Lawrence Carter, Professor of Religion and College Curator at Morehouse College, reflects on the cosmopolitan nature of interfaith, what it means to be a global citizen and the responsibility everyone has to ensure peace and nonviolence.
