I started working my way through it. Brutal. Hard to listen to. And I'm not talking about the genres like Rap and Hip Hop - they carry just as much weight as, say, Marvin Gaye (happens to be playing right now).

Peace,
chris

edit: Fannie Lou Hamer's speech. Powerful stuff.

MLK, In His Own Words 
by Ron Forthofer 

As we honor and celebrate the life of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., let us reflect on his message: "He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it."

Martin Luther King Jr. Celebrations Overlook His Critiques of Capitalism and Militarism - The Intercept

America’s celebrations of Martin Luther King, Jr. typically focus on his civil rights activism: the nonviolent actions that led to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The last few years of King’s life, by contrast, are generally overlooked. When he was assassinated in 1968, King was in the midst of waging a radical campaign against economic inequality and poverty, while protesting vigorously against the Vietnam War. (...)
