V&A Honors Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Passionate Advocacy to Further the Civil Rights Movement and Laborer Rights

By Claire Vinyard

Martin Luther King, Jr., Address Delivered at the Fourth Constitutional Convention of the AFL-CIO (Dec. 11, 1961) (full transcript available from The Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute)

At Virginia & Ambinder, we strive to assist laborers and the labor movement to “bring the law to life” to protect and lift up workers everywhere.  So on this day honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., we celebrate not only his passionate advocacy and inspiring work to further the Civil Rights movement, but also his dedication to economic rights, and his promotion of and support for the trade unions and laborers in this country.
