The King Collection

Research & Scholarship


about-img
Teaching, Research and Scholarship with the Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection involves an ongoing effort to promote the serious study of Dr. King and the struggle for civil and human rights within the United States and throughout the world. Researchers and scholars have open access to the Collection and are invited to visit and conduct scholarly inquiry from a range of disciplinary perspectives, including theology, history, sociology, political science among others. There are opportunities for presenting work-in-progress to the college community and in various other settings at the institution. Morehouse faculty members are strongly encouraged to draw upon the Collection in teaching; several have supervised directed reading and independent study for seniors conducting advanced level research. The Collection's archivists provide a rich resource, not only in its conservation and preservation, but as knowledgeable guides to accessing items of note within the Collection.
