Prof. Manu Ampim: The Enduring Legacy of the Life of the Rev. Martin L. King, Jr.
Prof. Manu Ampim: The Enduring Legacy of the Life of the Rev. Martin L. King, Jr. - In this two-hour presentation we host one of the world's foremost scholars on the life, times, writings, FBI files and tactical strategies of this Great and Beloved Ancestor. Many of the myths that are being promoted about Dr. King are so superficial that they are summarily dismissed such as King as a "dreamer" or an "integrationist." His battles with the U.S. political machinery, including warmaking around the world, became central battlegrounds for significant parts of his life. As well we look closely at King's international profile, resistance from fellows within the movement and his date with destiny on April 4, 1968 when the sniper's bullet ended his life. His legacy continues on today and for the future. (LIBMP3-3270)
