130503 Julianne Malveaux - Economic Justice: Dr. King's Legacy

The conventional media image of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has him frozen in time at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963 giving his inspirational "I Have a Dream" speech. Little attention is paid to King's remarkable political and social evolution in the last five years of his life. He became a trenchant critic of the Vietnam War. In his classic sermon at the Riverside Church in New York he denounced the war and "the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism." King increasingly saw the link between economic justice and racial equality and insisted that one was impossible without the other. His final days were spent in Memphis where he was actively supporting a strike by black sanitation workers and he was planning to launch a poor peopleís march on Washington, DC. An assassinís bullet ended his life on April 4, 1968.

Julianne Malveaux is the President of Bennett College for Women. She is an economist, author and commentator. A committed activist and civic leader, Dr. Malveaux has held positions in womenís, civil rights, and policy organizations. Currently she serves on the boards of the Economic Policy Institute, The Recreation Wish List Committee of Washington, DC, and the Liberian Education Trust.She is the Founder of Last Word Productions.
