Video Monday: Martin Luther King, Jr

Video Mondays

On March 28, 1965, Martin Luther King, Jr. appeared on NBC’s Meet The Press. 

One week after leading his historic five-day march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, King said that the demonstration was necessary not just to help push the Voting Rights Bill through, but to draw attention to the humiliating conditions in Alabama such as police brutality and racially-motivated murder.
