In "MLK’s Vision Matters Today for the 43 Million Americans Living in Poverty," Joshua Inwood, associate professor of geography, looks at how King was convinced that for the civil rights movement to achieve its goals, poverty needed to become a central focus of the movement. The article was first published in The Conversation, an independent, nonprofit publisher of commentary and analysis, authored by academics and edited by journalists for the general public. Since its original publication, Inwood's article has been republished in The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, and salon.com.
