Starvation Wages are a “Crime”: Lessons from MLK & 1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike, 50 Years Later

This week, commemorations are being held to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The civil rights leader and peace activist was gunned down April 4, 1968, on the balcony of his hotel room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
