  2. Equality: Dr. King’s message centered around the idea that all people, regardless of race or ethnicity, should be treated equally under the law and in society.

  3. Civil disobedience: Dr. King encouraged the use of civil disobedience to challenge unjust laws and policies. He believed that individuals have a moral responsibility to stand up against injustice, even if it means breaking the law.

  4. Integration: Dr. King advocated for the integration of schools, workplaces, and public spaces, arguing that separate but equal was inherently unequal.

  5. Voting rights: Dr. King fought for the right of all citizens to vote, regardless of race. He believed that voting was a fundamental right and a critical tool for achieving meaningful change.

  6. Poverty and economic justice: Dr. King also spoke out about economic inequality and the need for fair wages and working conditions for all people.

Overall, Dr. King’s message emphasized the importance of justice, equality, and nonviolence in the pursuit of a more just and equitable society. His legacy continues to inspire people around the world today.

12 Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Nobel Peace Prize Lecture from Oslo, 11 Dec. 1964 (full audio)

20 jan. 2016

Audio: © NRK – Norsk Rikskringkasting AS / Text: © The Nobel Foundation 1964 Dr. Martin Luther King’s 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Lecture. “One of his most important speeches”, comments Dr. Clayborne Carson, Director of The King Institute at Stanford University, on the lecture. ”It lays out his goals for the remainder of his life. He also addresses the problems of racial injustice, poverty and war as global evils rather than specific American problems.”
The recording dates from 11 December 1964, and in contrast with the previously published text version, it finishes with Dr. King echoing his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech for equality and freedom: “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent campaign against racial segregation, a Prize which he accepted on behalf of the civil rights movement. The Nobel Lecture is a requirement for the Nobel Prize. A Nobel Lecture has been held by all Laureates – with very few exceptions – since the first Nobel Prizes were awarded in 1901.

13 jan. 2016

In July 1962 Dr. martin Luther King, Jr. became the first African American to speak at the Club. An audio recording was made of the speech and filed away in the Club’s Archives and later transferred to the Library of Congress. No television footage of the speech in its entirety exists.

The Club’s History and Heritage Committee recently retrieved the recording and found it is of significant historical value. Coming just days after Dr. King was released from jail in Albany, Ga., the civil rights leader outlined his vision for non-violent protest as the best way to achieve racial equality.

On Jan. 12, portions of the speech will be played and experts on the civil rights movement will add context and perspective to what Dr. King said. Press Club President John Hughes will unveil a permanent Club memorial to Dr. King’s speech.

Marked Man – Martin Luther King & the FBI | History Documentary

Watch ‘Robert F. Kennedy – America’s Lost President’ here: https://youtu.be/BZ8FGhabafs

Black America was crying out for change, and through the ‘50s and ‘60s, Martin Luther King was the man charged with bringing it, as the leader of the Civil Rights Movement. But not everybody wanted change – and some would bitterly oppose it.

This documentary tells the true story of how the eminent activist was subjected to a campaign of intimidation by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI. Convinced that King was a stooge of the Communists, the controversial FBI Director was determined to stop him at any cost.

Colleagues and academics explore the depth of Hoover’s relentless vendetta, examining why he targeted King, and the legacy of his decision to do so.
