Interview with Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter Bernice King (E1019)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Bernice King, the daughter of legendary civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. She discusses why she believes her father was assassinated for speaking about economic justice and linking poverty to the immiseration of the working classes, the attempts to create a divide in the black liberation movement by pitting MLK against Malcolm X, the often unacknowledged yet vital role of her mother Coretta Scott King in the civil rights movement, MLK’s opposition to the Vietnam War, the Black Lives Matter movement and the murder of George Floyd, the Tulsa Race Massacre and its significance in American history, claims by liberals that more black politicians and business leaders show marked improvement in conditions for African Americans, and much more!
