Professor Eddie Glaude, Jr. shares his insights on the often overlooked radical truths of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Though mainstream society remembers Dr. King's speeches of reform and peace, we must also not forget the disruptive nature of his dream for a better future. 

"By the time king is murdered, he's still is talking about love - he's a preacher after all - but he's speaking to the three evils: the peril of militarism, the effects of capitalism, and of course the ongoing sin of racism."

 - Dr. Eddie Glaude, Jr.
