Description of Pictures: "Reclaiming the Great World House: Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Vision for 21st Century Leadership" with Dr. Vicki Crawford
* Dr. Vicki Crawford is Director of the Office of the Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection, an archive containing over 13,000 items belonging to Dr. King. As Director, she develops campus-based programming and community outreach initiatives that advance the teachings and philosophy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. Crawford is a civil rights scholar whose groundbreaking volume of essays, Women in the Civil Rights Movement: Trailblazers and Torchbearers (1993) was one of the first publications to address the under-researched role of women in the African American freedom struggle. She has published numerous essays and book chapters on the Civil Rights Movement and has a strong interest in public history, having conducted workshops and seminars for middle and high school teachers as well as community leaders. Her publications include an essay, “Remembering Coretta Scott King and the Struggle for Civil and Human Rights,” in the Journal of African-American History and a foreword in the collection of essays on King titled "Caught in an Inescapable Network of Mutuality: Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Globalization of an Ethical Ideal".
Dr. Crawford has a Ph.D. degree in American Studies from Emory University and has completed post-doctoral fellowships at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Currently, she is the General Series Editor for the Morehouse College King Collection Series on Civil and Human Rights, a collaboration with the University of Georgia Press.
Every year, the Leadership, Ethics, and Practice Initiative at the Elliott School of International Affairs partners with the Multicultural Student Services Center to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr during King Week. This year, the George Washington University will welcome Dr. Vicki Crawford for a discussion on the following topic: "Reclaiming the Great World House: Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Vision for 21st Century Leadership", based on Dr. Crawford's recently published book, "Reclaiming the Great World House: The Global Vision of Martin Luther King Jr", which will be available for sale during the event.
You are invited to join us for a discussion, that will be followed by a reception. Please see below for more information.

Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
