On Thursday, October 29 from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute will screen At the Table with Dr. King for the Stanford community, in partnership with the Office for Religious & Spiritual Life (ORSL) and African and African American Studies (AAAS). Produced by the Mizel Museum, it is a one-hour dramatic presentation that uses live music, spoken word, and historical footage to bring to life a moment of crisis that King faced during the Montgomery Bus Boycott:
I said, "Lord, I’m down here trying to do what’s right. I think I’m right; I think the cause that we represent is right. But Lord, I must confess that I’m weak now; I’m faltering; I’m losing my courage. And I can’t let the people see me like this because if they see me weak and losing my courage, they will begin to get weak..."
And it seemed at that moment that I could hear an inner voice saying to me, "Martin Luther, stand up for righteousness, stand up for justice, stand up for truth. And lo I will be with you, even until the end of the world."
