Read an excerpt from All Labor Has Dignity (http://www.beacon.org/productdetails.cfm?SKU=8600).

People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committed to economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. As we struggle with massive unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of our financial system, King's prophetic writings and speeches underscore his relevance for today.

Hitting all the civil rights movement highlights—Montgomery, Selma, Memphis, Albany, and Birmingham—award-winning historian Michael Honey traces King's economic dream, from lectures to unions in the 1960s to addresses during his Poor People's Campaign, culminating with his momentous "Mountaintop" speech, delivered in support of striking black sanitation workers in Memphis.

Gathered in one volume for the first time, the majority of these speeches will be new to most readers. They help us imagine King anew: as a human rights leader whose commitment to economic justice was a crucial part of his civil rights agenda.
