All Labor Has Dignity, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Economic Justice

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Michael Honey about "All Labor Has Dignity," a book of speeches by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on economic justice. Honey edited the book.

People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committed to economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. As we struggle with massive unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of our financial system, King’s prophetic writings and speeches underscore King’s relevance for today. Michael Honey's collection traces King’s economic dream, from lectures to unions in the 1960s to addresses during his Poor People’s Campaign, culminating with his momentous “Mountaintop” speech, delivered in support of striking black sanitation workers in Memphis.
