Using direct audio from Cornell West and Martin Luther King, NY Liberty Radio allows his vision to speak for itself.

"As we have seen, the first public expression of disenchantment with nonviolence arose around the question of "self-defense." In a sense this is a false issue, for the right to defend one's home and one's person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law." - Martin Luther King Jr.

"We've got some difficult days ahead, but it really doesn't matter with me now, cause I've been to the mountaintop. I don't mind. Like anybody I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place but I'm not concerned about that now. I just wanna do God's will, and he's allowed me to go up to the mountain, and I've looked over, and I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight, that we as a people will get to the promised land! So I'm happy tonight, I'm not worried about anything, I'm not fearing any man, mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord."
~ Martin Luther King

The next day, he was killed.
