Reblog of my post on MLK here.
MLK on Merv Griffin:
A compilation of MLK here on WEWS:
I didn’t get what they were saying in the first part of the video, with asking stores not to stock something…until the middle of the video, where MLK talks about Sealtest agreeing to hire African Americans.
And as a side note~ while watching this, I think about the Big Box stores and how it would be much more difficult for MLK to use the tool of boycotting. Too Big Too Fails have other consequences besides just their economic monopoly–they are immune to social pressure such as this (and of course, in modern day low wages requiring full time employees to go on food stamps.)
