Little seen Martin Luther King interview 11 months before his assassination

Today we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As we suffer through a day and age where white nationalism has seen a grand resurgence I am troubled about the health and safety of our democracy. Today I wanted to pass along this little seen interview by NBC News of Dr. King as he discusses what he sees as a “new phase” of the civil rights movement on the horizon.

In 1967, at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Martin Luther King spoke with NBC News’ Sander Vanocur about the “new phase” of the struggle for “genuine equality.”
