Abstract

The implications of Martin Luther King’s vision of the great world house for millennial activists involved in local and transnational struggles is the focus of the chapter. The authors examine Black Lives Matter crusades in the United States and the United Kingdom as a case study to explore how sociocultural exchanges between young activists might draw upon, contest, and/or reimagine King’s vision in the continuing struggle for a stronger and better humanity.
