The connection between Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination and a sanitation worker's strike in Memphis, Tennessee, is rarely alluded to, but this well-researched and stirring history highlights the series of events that led to the Civil Rights leader's murder. After the terrible deaths of two African American sanitation workers in Memphis due to unsafe working conditions, there were massive protests and then a strike. Dr. King came to the city to support the striking workers, and gave what would be his final, stirring speech. Exploring how the strike was connected to the greater Civil Rights Movement, how Dr. King's death helped to resolve the sanitation worker's issues, and how each step of the way affected the next, this book provides an excellent picture of a key time in America's history. With resources, bibliography, notes, and more.
