World House Project Main Page
The World House Project is a new initiative of the Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University, formed in partnership with the Freeman Spogli Institute (FSI). The Project is named after King's vision of the World House: "Some years ago a famous novelist died. Among his papers was found a list of suggested plots for future stories, the most prominently underscored being this one: 'A widely separated family inherits a house in which they have to live together.' This is the great new problem of mankind. We have inherited a large house, a great 'world house' in which we have to live together — black and white, Easterner and Westerner, Gentile and Jew, Catholic and Protestant, Muslim and Hindu — a family unduly separated in ideas, culture and interest, who, because we can never again live apart, must learn somehow to live with each other in peace."
