Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA 30314-3776)
Vicki Lynn Crawford (Project Director: June 2014 to April 2018)
Humanities Teaching and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection at Morehouse College

A series of activities to incorporate primary documents from the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection into humanities teaching.

The Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection provides an unparalleled intellectual resource in teaching across the humanities. Containing approximately 13, 000 original items belonging to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and housed in the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, the collection offers a rich pedagogical tool for deep teaching and learning with primary source materials. This proposal comprises four components: 1) curriculum enhancement; 2) college-museum partnership; 3) digital resource development initiative; 4) public programming. A major element of the project entails deepening and expanding humanities instruction through the study and use of primary documents from the Morehouse College King Collection. Core faculty participants will develop project-based instructional modules to enhance courses in history, English, African-American Studies and Philosophy. The college-museum partnership will engage both faculty and museum educators.
