On his birthday - Jan 15th - Trying not to lose the real Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King Jr:  Civil rights leader and activist for peace, justice and human rights:

Born Jan 15th 1929; murdered April 4th 1968

As against the popular conception of Martin Luther King Junior: beyond the image of the liberal campaigner against segregation - there was a more radical thinker and activist - a man opposed to war, and opposed to a social and economic system built around the concentration of wealth - and the oppression, exploitation, disenfranchisement and suffering which followed thus...  Martin Luther King's fight against segregation was a critical aspect of this man's struggle - but we should celebrate the entirety of his message - against injustice and war... This video pays homage to the real Martin Luther King...
