Washington College and St. John’s Philosophy Roundtable 2018

The Department of Philosophy and Religion hosted the annual WC-St. John’s Philosophy Roundtable featuring audience discussion of a philosophical text. This discussion is annually co-led by Tutors Tom May and Mathew Holtzman of St. John’s College, Annapolis. All students, faculty, staff, and members of the college community are welcome to attend.

Attendees were asked to read the text, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “Letter from the Birmingham Jail.”The text is a public statement by eight Alabama clergymen denouncing Martin Luther King’s efforts which provides the important background to his response letter.
