DIKES OF COURAGE: MARTIN LUTHER KING, THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT AND THE AESTHETICS OF PROTEST

Fifty year after the assassination of Martin Luther King, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s is frequently memorialized as a moment of almost inevitable national redemption, when a call to the better angels of American consciousness brought the country together to overcome injustices that no longer plague the present. As  historian Jeanne Theoharis argues in A More Beautiful and Terrible History: The Uses and Misuses of Civil Rights History (2018, this interpretative frame has frequently constructed a self-congratulatory discourse that whitewashes the immense obstacles and violence faced by the Civil Rights movement and its leaders, rather than soberly remember the “dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear” that, in Dr.

“Multicultural Writers as Chroniclers of Culture: Strategies for Teaching Texts that Centralize the Marginalized," Multicultural Literature in the Classroom, Midwest MLA, November 15-18, 2018

Religion and Literature Permanent Section (MMLA 2018)

This topic could be considered in a multitude of ways. Religious practice often involves food—both in preparation and consumption—as the center of observance and practice. On the other hand, consumerism, specifically the purchase and/or display of products, is also present in many expressions of 20th and 21st Century religiosity. This is perhaps best depicted in the “megachurch,” but also in the ever-broadening “religious” sub-genres of fiction and film.
