Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The Poor Peoples Campaign & Reparations

MLPPJanuary 19, 2015 – Segment 3

The Poor People’s Campaign was a testament to Dr. King’s long term vision for civil rights and equality,  beyond integration and voters rights.  He understood that unless there were equal economic opportunities for all Americans, the dream of social mobility and equality  would never truly be realized.

Marc and his panel turn their attention to Dr. King’s economic policies and the Activities of the Poor People’s Campaign.  Our guests for this segment: Adar Ayira, Project Manager of the More in the Middle Campaign for Associated Black Charities and facilitator and analyst at Baltimore Racial Justice Action, a program of Fusion Partnerships; Robert Birt, author of The Liberatory Thought of Martin Luther King Jr.: Critical Essays on the Philosopher King, and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Bowie State University; and Jeff Singer, Founder and former Executive Director of Health Care for the Homeless.
