In the Spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. in Europe

From Phillip Martin | Part of the Standing Up To Hate in Europe series | 07:20

A German activist describes how MLK influenced her life and her life-long struggle against right-wing extremism.

Swastika_small Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Europeans have seen a steady resurgence of Neo-Nazi and anti-immigrant activities. While a great deal of attention has been focused on racist "skinheads", particularly in the eastern half of Germany, Sweden, and in Russia, far less attention has been paid to a loosely defined grass-roots, ANTI-racism Movement that has surfaced across the continent. Activists are working largely unseen to counter the proponents of hate. It is their story that I report in this four-part series titled "Standing Up To Hate in Europe". Part One: In the Spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. a German activist describes how MLK influenced her life and her life-long struggle against right-wing extremism and anti-Semitism. 7 min, 19 sec.

In the third of six programs that honour Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, the speech that brought him to national attention- I Have  Dream.  It was August 1963, and the occasion was the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. There were more than two hundred thousand people in the crowd and the speech galvanized, heartened and stirred them. But its impact went far beyond the people who were there that day- it is considered one of the greatest speeches in history. Also, the first of five half hour lectures called "Conscience for Change" that Dr. King gave on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in late 1967.  

Questions for Martin Luther King, Jr.

From David Green | 02:20

If given the chance to interview Dr. King, this is what a group of third graders would have asked him.

Mlk_small After learning about Martin Luther King, Jr. - and about how to be good radio reporters and interviewers -  a class of Chicago-area third graders (and one visiting student from South Korea) wrote down the most important questions they would have asked Dr. King if they could have interviewed him. The resulting audio collage captures the curiosity, empathy, wisdom and innocence of eight and nine-year old children.

MLK Was a Working-Class Hero

From Dick Meister | 03:11

A commentary noting that Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the staunchest and most effective supporters working Americans have ever had.

Default-piece-image-0 There are, of course, many reasons for celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day . But we shouldn't forget that one of the most important reasons is Dr. King's championing of union rights, which he considered to be one of the most important of civil rights. Dr, King was assassinated, remember, while helping lead the struggle for union recognition by sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. His death led directly to the strikers' victory in the face of what had been overwhelming odds and to similar victories throughout the South and elsewhere.

Water Woman

Another popular story inspired by the Water Woman stories was Hans Christian Anderson's,"Little Mermaid," which has a tragic ending. The story "Water Women" has a moral of comical comeuppance.
