Surprisingly however, these words were not issued by a political and social activist of 2006, they were delivered by a political and social activist of 1967, a man whom we remembered this past Monday named Martin Luther King Jr. This less-hyped part of Dr. King's legacy was brought to media attention in a Boston Globe article entitled "What King Really Dreamed." The article, co-authored by Rich Benjamin and Jamie Carmichael, speaks of a King who was increasingly outspoken about issues of economic equality, social justice and the poor.
