Publisher's Summary

In a rousing speech on race, poverty, and economic justice - given less than a year before his assassination - Martin Luther King Jr. drives home the mission behind his Poor People's Campaign. It is a clear-eyed look at the disparity of wealth in America, what it means for people of all colors - and a message of inspiration dedicated to the power of the people.
"And I say, if we will stand and work together, we will bring into being that day when justice will roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream. We will bring into being that day when America will no longer be two nations but when it will be one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Wanda Sykes' powerful performance delivers King's compassion, outrage, insight, and vulnerability like few others could - and reminds us all of the relevance his words still have today.
"The Other America" is one of 23 speeches and essays from The Radical King, curated by Dr. Cornel West, including words never recorded in public - a revelation for his legacy.
The Martin Luther King Estate has allowed, for the first time, a dramatic interpretation of King's words, by some of the most charismatic and activist actors working today: LeVar Burton, Mike Colter, Colman Domingo, Danny Glover, Gabourey Sidibe, Wanda Sykes, and Michael Kenneth Williams.
"The Other America" excerpt from The Radical King is free of charge to all listeners until Monday, April 2, 2018. To preorder the full, revealing collection, visit

Thank You Wanda!

Wanda's reading of Dr. Martin Luther King's speech is beautiful. I am a white person in grad school in the process of changing my career to become a high school teacher. I frequently debate with my class that while neo-liberalism is bypassing the majority of the black community before they get a chance to become key players in the corporate world by outsourcing high paying tech jobs to international workers, and neglecting sponsorship and involvement in public school curriculum-- but liberalism is equally harming the black community by telling them lies and harboring white people who prostrate themselves rather than applying themselves to practical improvement.

The going opinion in colleges among professors and students of all races is that the federal government should be moving toward a socialist state,


Dr. King is clearly saying on March 10, 1968 in this speech that African Americans want equal rights in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

In 2018, amidst continuing struggles, those Americans who have the experience, leadership and knowledge need keep moving forward to foster career readiness in American high school children of all socioeconomic statuses and races, and to help African American children to feel confident and competitive, understand their identity, importance and rights as Americans; and to include historical accuracy in teaching the amazing contributions that their ancestors have made toward building the United States.
