Answering the Knock at Midnight: Martin Luther King’s Legacy in the Contemporary Black Church

Tamelyn Tucker-Worgs, Ph.D.

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.
