BIOGRAPHY and AUTOBIOGRAPHY, HISTORY


More than 50 years ago, an assassin's bullet robbed us of one of the most eloquent voices for 20th-century human rights and justice. Drawing on a new generation of scholarship about the civil rights era, To the Promised Land goes beyond the iconic view of King as an advocate of racial harmony to explore his profound commitment to the poor and working class, and his call for "nonviolent resistance" to all forms of oppression, including economic injustice.

Phase one of that struggle led to the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts. In phase two, King organized poor people and demonstrated for union rights, while seeking a "moral revolution" to replace the self-seeking individualism of the rich with an overriding concern for the common good. To the Promised Land asks us to think about what it would mean to truly fulfill King's legacy and move toward what he called "the Promised Land" in our own time.

ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB

A former civil rights organizer continues his studies about Martin Luther King Jr. by focusing on King’s insistence that all Americans receive a living wage for their work.

Less a revisionist history of King than a worthy look at a seldom-documented portion of his agenda.
