Some colleagues have posted wonderful articles in honor of Martin Luther

King Jr.'s birthday, so I thought I would send links to 2 articles I

wrote about his wisdom from a psychological point of view.


(1) Lessons on Love from Martin Luther King: A Psychologist’s Dream. [1]


Martin Luther King is so well known as a civil rights icon and peace

prophet but read about his lesser-known wisdom about love, that I love.

See my article on [2]


(2) Lessons about Overcoming Personality Problems from Martin Luther

King: A Psychologist’s Dream.  HTTPS://TINYURL.COM/Y7AQCK7F [3]


Martin Luther King changed the world in his courageous civil rights

activism but his lesser known wisdom addressed overcoming personality

problems!  See my article on [2]
