November 22, 2010 Christopher Webb Professor Vernon Williams AAAD-A 405 Indiana University Drawing on Martin Luther King’s “Stride Toward Freedom”, I have examined that King’s insights on colorblind universalism and libertarian conservatism, is uniquely manifested in King’s faith in his methods and beliefs. King, who from my analysis profoundly took it upon himself to incorporate, institutionalized actions and readings of symbolic figures in history of struggle that did not want to provoke nor persuade any violence. Further examination on Martin Luther King’s idea of colorblind universalism, and libertarian conservatism, I analyzed King’s strong relationship he had with his church and Christian faith. King’s, readings of Walter Rauschenbusch’s “Christianity and the Social Crisis” he claims left an “inedible imprint” in his thinking. He also believed it gave him the theological basis for the social concern, in which he grew up with. A particular ideology that Rauschenbusch has left in King’s way of thinking is the insistence that gospel deals with a whole man not only his soul. Rauschenbusch also established in King, that any religion professed to be concerned about the souls of men, is not concerned about the social and economic conditions that scar the soul. Martin Luther King’s, concerns about social concerns he formidably put in the hands of god. King encouraged “love thy neighbor” throughout the boycotts, as well the protests and his churches, believing violence would not be a set up for respect of one of another.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
