Add to calendar

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Rev Dr. Martin Luther King. This rarely-seen documentary from 1970 traces King’s life and accomplishments from the 1955 bus boycott to his 1968 assassination. The ‘Triple Evils’ that MLK talked of in 1967/68 are still interconnected, only now they are global: $1.7trillion global military spend; even greater levels of global inequality; and the far-right rising. King’s analysis is still very relevant today.
