Summary
Fifty years ago, a single bullet robbed us of one of the world's most eloquent voices for human rights and justice. To the Promised Land goes beyond the iconic view of Martin Luther King Jr. as an advocate of racial harmony to explore his profound commitment to the poor and working class and his call for "nonviolent resistance" to all forms of oppression, including the economic injustice that "takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes."
Summary
Goes beyond popularized views of Martin Luther King, Jr., to explore his committed advocacy of the poor, the working class ,and unions, as well as his views about nonviolent resistance to all forms of oppression, particularly economic inequality
