Martin Luther King Jr’s Legacy

As people are protesting all around the country against police violence and for renewing MLK Jr’s legacy we rebroadcast two speeches about his radical legacy. The first is a speech given by Clayborne Carson historian at Stanford University and the second is given by Tavis Smiley author of the book: Death of a King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Final Year.

Then, we play clips of a newfound speech given by Martin Luther King Jr in London in 1964.
