A Sisters~Nineties Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King delivered his last speech on April 3, 1968. He spoke in support of the Memphis sanitation workers who were on strike. In his "I've Been to the Mountaintop" oration, Dr. King emphasized the necessity of unity among the Black people of Memphis. He called for cooperative economics and named the companies from which people of Afrikan descent should withdraw patronage.

Come out to hear the nationalistic concepts of Dr. King as members of Sisters~Nineties present "I've Been to the Mountaintop." This is the speech for which Dr. King should be best remembered.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated the day following his delivery of "I've Been to the Mountaintop."
