in the footsteps of Martin Luther King, a Christian voice of America

-

“I have a dream”. From Atlanta, Georgia, Philippe Corbé looks back on the important role Martin Luther King played in the United States. This key figure of the 20th century is also seen as a major Christian voice by Americans. If he was listened to and then heard, including by those who did not want to grant the same rights to blacks, it is also because he was a man of faith.

His word, Martin Luther King had baptized it the “social gospel”, the social gospel. In Atlanta, he understood that his words, inspired by God, could show his followers, then America, the way to justice, love and change the country.

The day before his assassination on April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King was giving a speech at a church in Memphis. A speech that sounds today almost like a testament. He says there that his divine mission has been accomplished, like Moses who showed the Jews the way to the promised land.
