Obama and King

In her August 18 Nation article, Adele Oltman situates Barack Obama in an American religious tradition closely associated with Martin Luther King--MLK, Sr., that is.

Oltman is the author of SACRED MISSION, WORLDLY AMBITION which reveals how business principles and religious faith informed and reinforced each other in Jim Crow-era, middle-class black communities.

Oltman will be talking more about Obama's faith in the coming days on Air America Radio and Al Jazeera English. Check back often for details.
