Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died on April 4, 1968 while supporting Memphis public sector workers in their fight for collective bargaining rights.
Dr. King exemplified the critical connection between the struggle for social justice (the civil rights movement) and the struggle for economic justice (the trade union movement).
2011 – how little has changed. The fight continues. April has been designated a national day of protest in honor of Dr. King's example.
