Tamelyn Tucker-Worgs: Martin Luther King’s Legacy in the Contemporary Black Church
In 1963 Martin Luther King, Jr. challenged the black church to “answer the knock at midnight” and progressively engage in public life. As part of its annual tribute to the memory of Dr. King, native Houstonian Tamelyn Tucker-Worgs, Ph.D., will address faith-based community development in today’s churches—where it works, and where it fails, and how gender plays a role, particularly in the megachurch phenomenon.
Dr. Tamelyn Tucker-Worgs is the winner of the 2012 The National Conference of Black Political Scientists W.E.B. DuBois Distinguished Book Award
