UT AMS Grad Amy Nathan Wright Pens Essay on MLK’s Vision for Economic Justice for National Civil Rights Museum


A half-century after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4th, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee, the National Civil Rights Museum–also in Memphis–has commissioned a series of fifty essays to mark the fifty years since King’s death.  Dr. Amy Nathan Wright, a graduate of the UT-Austin American Studies doctoral program, published one of those essays on October 10th, 2017, specifically considering Dr. King’s revolutionary vision for economic justice.  Please read the essay, entitled “Dr. King’s Dream Deferred: Poverty, & Economic Human Rights,” and learn more about the National Civil Rights Museum, here.
