Peter Sheldrake on Martin Luther King - Philosopher Series - Graduate School of Business

Graduate School of Business Philosophers Series - Martin Luther King

Professor Peter Sheldrake provides an introduction to the work of twentieth century philosophers and invites the audience to reflect upon the relevance of their thinking to corporate life and how they might apply the findings to their own business practice.

Martin Luther King was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means. Drawing on his skills as a Baptist minister, and his desire to realise the equality of man envisioned by the US Declaration of Independence, King helped organise a march on Washington, DC and delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech, credited as prompting the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
