Martin Luther King, Jr. and Foreign Policy Professor Carson spoke about Dr. King’s attitudes toward Western philosophical universal ideals, such as democracy and freedom. He posited that King would have criticized those who completely refute the idea of any universal truths or values for humanity and instead would have reconfigured Western values which had been used to repress African-Americans and others to create a more free and just human society. He also talked about how this applied to King’s views on U.S. foreign policy. After his remarks, he took questions from the audience. close
