Something Is Happening in Memphis: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Last Campaign

Posted on December 10, 2018 by PLT Staff

Lecture given by Greg Thompson at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA (October 2018). Detailing the vision of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., Thompson reflects on King’s work in Memphis with the Sanitation Workers’ Strike. King believed the rich, poor, white, black, gentile, Protestant, and Catholic needed to be united in collaboration. When all people are unified, beloved community will truly exist. King anchored his movement in love and he was inspired by the movement in Memphis. Thompson traces the history of civil rights in Memphis to the city’s continuing restoration today.
