The Great Debate is an intellectual and cultural forum debating “hot topic” issues from the perspectives of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and a synthesis of the two perspectives. Since 1985 in Nashville, TN, the Great Debate has engaged campus, community, government and business leaders through this safe, informative, educational and highly-entertaining approach to addressing relevant issues of the day. The Great Debate aims to increase audiences’ respect, understanding and justice through study, debate and practice.
