Abstract

This audio recording is a 1976 episode of the radio program “Martin Luther King Speaks.” The episode is a tribute episode to Dr. Vivian Wilson Henderson and reproduces a speech given by Henderson at the 18th Annual Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) Convention in 1975. Dr. Henderson discusses the economic situation facing the United States and how it affects African Americans as well as the working poor. He argues for improved public policies, including a drive for a policy of full employment. Henderson closes by urging that economic class distinctions, and not just race relations, need to be considered more by organizations such as the SCLC.
