"All Labor Has Dignity" (King Legacy)

This book is about Martin Luther King Jr.
"All Labor Has Dignity" (King Legacy) is a profound compilation that delves deep into Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s advocacy for labor rights and economic justice. Published on January 10, 2012, this book brings together, for the first time, a series of groundbreaking speeches delivered by Dr. King from the 1960s until his last days. Historian Michael K. Honey curates these historical narratives, taking readers on a journey through pivotal civil rights milestones—from Montgomery to Memphis. This collection not only highlights King's speeches during significant labor strikes but also features his lesser-known addresses from the Poor People's Campaign. The book culminates with the iconic "Mountaintop" speech, which underscores his unyielding support for striking black sanitation workers. Ideal for college students studying social justice, this book enriches our comprehension of King's enduring vision for economic equality and prompts reflection on how his call for justice resonates in today's society.
