Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Remembering Martin Luther King Jr., by Fr. Richard J. Neuhaus. Personal memories of the civil rights leader interspersed with a critical review of an autobiography of Dr. King by Marshall Frady. First Things 26. Oct. 2002.
  • The Martin Luther King Jr. Papers Project at Stanford University.
  • Classic photographs of Dr. King from LIFE magazine.
  • There is no understanding Dr. King without recognizing the deep Christian faith which fueled his campaign for civil rights. Those interested will certainly appreciate Strength To Love, a fine collection of his best sermons.
  • Via Eve Tushnet, an interview with Alveda King, neice of Dr. King:
    "I can remember the days when Jesse Jackson was pro-life, and he went across the country calling abortion genocide. I don't understand how he took that turn or why. I personally believe that any leader, especially African-American leaders -- and I can say this because I'm African-American -- should be compelled to remember the days of slavery and to remember their responsibility toward the children we call the unborn. They are real people too, and they actually have civil rights."
