"An unprecedented and timely collection of Dr. King’s speeches on labor rights and economic justice.

Covering all the civil rights movement highlights–Montgomery, Albany, Birmingham, Selma, Chicago, and Memphis–award-winning historian Michael K. Honey introduces and traces Dr. King’s dream of economic equality. Gathered in one volume for the first time, the majority of these speeches will be new to most readers. The collection begins with King’s lectures to unions in the 1960s and includes his addresses made during his Poor People’s Campaign, culminating with his momentous 'Mountaintop' speech, delivered in support of striking black sanitation workers in Memphis."
