"We the disinherited of this land" : kinship with the poor, 1929-1956 -- "We have a powerful instrument" : civil rights unionism and the Cold War, 1957-1963 -- "Northern ghettos are the prisons of forgotten men" : labor and civil rights at the crossroads, 1964-1966 -- "In God's economy" : organizing the Poor People's Campaign, 1967-1968 -- "All labor has dignity" : uprising of the working poor, 1968 -- "Dangerous unselfishness."
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."
