Call for Papers: 

Prophetic Pulpits: The Influence and Legacies of MLK Jr. among Latina/o Activists

Recognizing Atlanta as a major center in the civil rights movement, we invite papers focused on the interplay between MLK Jr.'s religiously grounded civic activism as a model/partner/influence to Latina/o social engagement. Essentially we seek papers that will connect black and brown approaches to civic activism which are rooted in religious convictions. Potential themes for papers include:
• MLK's friendship and political/religious solidarity with César Chávez
• Historical sketches of Latina/o activists en la lucha for racial equality, workers' rights, immigration reform, etc.
• Critical comparison/contrast of National Latina/o Evangelical leaders advancing social reform through pulpit ministry (Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, NHCLC; Rev. Gabriel Salguero, NaLEC)
• Current hot topics on black/brown race issues in the media (Ferguson, Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman)
• Activism in the barrio/hood and in the prison systems (Young Lords and Black Panthers connections)
• Reies Lopez Tijerina’s involvement in the Poor Peoples’ Campaign and Resurrection City
