Description: 

Come to hear and discuss a recently re-discovered audio recording of Dr. King's 1964 speech to the British Christian Action Group, on the international relevance of the U.S. Civil Rights movement. King connects African-Americans’ struggle for civil rights to the African decolonization movement, and considers both violence and non-violence as tools for political change.
