Clayborn Carson, left, is set to teach the MLK classes at Morehouse

A leading scholar of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., will teach a class on the civil rights icon this fall at Morehouse College, using the collection of documents, books and other items housed at the school.

Clayborne Carson, who was named executive director of the Martin Luther King Jr., Collection in January, will teach “Martin Luther King Jr., and the Modern Freedom Struggle.”  Carson was tapped by King’s widow, Coretta Scott King, to edit and publish his papers in 1985.

King graduated from Morehouse with a degree in sociology in 1948.

The collection was bought on June 23, 2006, in a 11th-hour, $32 million private sale brokered by Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin that thwarted a public auction to be held at Sotheby’s in New York.
