Event Description: Does the First Amendment protect public advocacy from the pulpit? What about prayer at a public, secular event? Is the religious rhetoric often used by political leaders inherently divisive, or can it serve a unifying purpose? Join Duke Law Professors Guy-Uriel Charles and H. Jefferson Powell as they explore the role of religion in public life and the role of religious leaders in politics, from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to Reverends Rick Warren and Jeremiah Wright. The event is part of Duke University's celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Lunch provided.
