Video and Discussion: The Other America

Attend an evening of networking prior to viewing the film The Other America.  A facilitated discussion on Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech will follow.

Enjoy networking appetizers from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The video will start promptly at 5:30 p.m.
 
On April 14, 1967, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King gave his “The Other America” speech at Stanford University.  Rarely taught or talked about many feel that this is among Dr. King’s most powerful speeches.  While acknowledging the civil rights movement fought for and achieved success in the previous decades, Dr. King stresses that “we must see that the struggle today is much more difficult.  It's more difficult today because we are struggling now for genuine equality.  And it's much easier to integrate a lunch counter than it is to guarantee a livable income and a good solid job. It's much easier to guarantee the right to vote than it is to guarantee the right to live in sanitary, decent housing"
