Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and His Association with the Labor Movement

As we celebrate the birthday, legacy and teachings of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King today, let’s also remember that he was also prophetic. His admonitions about the dangers of not addressing the nations’ historical millstone of social and economic inequality was prescient; given our current American Dilemma.  Many of the solutions to todays’ issues can be found in his intersecting of the American Labor movement and the Civil Rights movement. This short clip shows the implications, then and now,  of heeding his call for social and economic justice.  

Happy Birthday, Dr. King.
