An unprecedented and timely collection of Dr. Kingrs"s speeches on labor rights and economic justice People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committed to 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, Kingrs"s prophetic writings and speeches underscore Kingrs"s relevance for today. Hitting all the civil rights movement highlights-Montgomery, Selma, Memphis, Albany, and Birmingham-award-winning historian Michael Honey traces Kingrs"s economic dream, from lectures to unions in the 1960s to addresses during his Poor Peoplers"s Campaign, culminating with his momentous "Mountaintop" 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 be new 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.
