“All Labor Has Dignity” (King Legacy)

People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committed to economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. He fought throughout his life to connect the labor and civil rights movements, envisioning them as twin pillars for social reform. This new volume edited by Michael Honey, presents a unique and inspiring collection of 16 speeches by Martin Luther King Jr. on workers rights and unions (12 of them previously unpublished). The collection makes clear that King’s vision of economic and social justice was not just the product of the Poor People’s Campaign he was organizing in his last days, but had deeper roots in his overall philosophy. This is an important reading especially in these days.
