"The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty."
              -Martin Luther King, Jr.

What would Martin Luther King, Jr.—whose message was about economic inequality as well as racial inequality—have to say to today's occupiers?

Color of Change and Rebuild the Dream are encouraging people to hold meet-ups to discuss King's message to the ongoing fight for social, economic, racial, and political equality. This video, "What Would MLK Do?" is part of their toolkit.
