12 Noon: Celebrating the Life and Work of Martin Luther King, Jr.

From the Vault of Pacifica Radio Archives — Celebrating the Life and Work of Martin Luther King, Jr.

By 1967, Dr. Martin Luther Kings strategy for organizing had evolved beyond Civil Rights. He clearly saw how resources that could be helping the poorer communities were being absorbed by the Military Budget. He began strategizing for a broader based Poor Peoples Campaign that went beyond the Black Communities and outreached to anyone who was poor.

You will hear many of these topics discussed in this February 25th, 1967 address sponsored by the Nation Magazine at a Nation Institute Conference in Los Angeles. The name title of his address is The Casualties of the War in Vietnam.

Next we hear one of the last speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. given in Anaheim California on March 16, 1968 just a few weeks before his assassination. This was given before the California Democratic Council at the Anaheim Convention Center.

King’s words in Anaheim incorporated the speech Vincent G. Harding wrote about the war, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence,” and another called “The Other America,” which addressed the deepening economic inequities between white and black America and called for such measures as a guaranteed minimum annual income.
