Publisher Comments:

An unprecedented and timely collection of Dr. King's speeches on labor rights and economic justice

People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committedto economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. As we struggle with massive unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of our financial system, King's prophetic writings andspeeches underscore King's relevance for today.

Hitting all the civil rights movement highlights--Montgomery, Selma, Memphis, Albany, and Birmingham--award-winninghistorian Michael Honey traces King's economic dream, from lectures to unions in the 1960s to addresses during his Poor People's Campaign, culminating with his momentousMountaintop speech, delivered in support of striking black sanitation workers in Memphis.

Gathered in one volume for the first time, the majority of these speeches will benew to most readers. They help us imagine King anew: as a human rights leader whose commitment to economic justice was a crucial part of his civil rights agenda.

Synopsis:
