Two of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s most radical works examining economic inequality, police brutality, and black power, which speak to our most pressing social issues of today. Though we're familiar with the celebrated King who shared his dream of racial equality on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and who reassured those engaged in the struggle that "if you stand up for justice you can never fail," it is rare that we remember his declarations that "a riot is the language of the unheard," or that "Black power is a cry of disappointment." Captured here, in this brief ebook volume, are excerpts of two of King's most radical works—"The Other America" and "Black Power"—which powerfully speak across time to our most pressing social issues today.
