All Labor Has Dignity
An unprecedented and timely collection of Martin Luther King's speeches on labor rights and economic justice. People forget that 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. As we struggle with massive unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of a financial system that puts profIt's before people, King's prophetic writings and speeches underscore his relevance for today.
