Title

Episode of the New American Gazette featuring Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1963 speech at the Ford Hall Forum, " Desegregation and the Future" [audio recording and transcript]

Description

Three weeks before he was jailed for leading peaceful protesters in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. King addressed the Ford Hall Forum in Boston on March 24 1963. His address, "The Future of Desegregation," coincided with the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation. Dr. King called for renewed Federal efforts at desegregation, while noting that "the law cannot change the heart, but it can restrain the heartless." The forum was rebroadcast as part of the New American Gazette program and includes an introduction by Barbara Jordan.
