A Literary Evening in Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1968)



Imagine it: Allen Ginsberg sings - howls - and reads poetry, as does that sly southern writer, Robert Penn Warren, while Ralph Ellison stuns with a story from the great second novel he never finished and James Baldwin concludes with a fiery recollection and plea for social justice. This remarkable tribute took place on November 3, 1968, just six months after the death of Dr. King. With introductions by Dr. William A. Rutherford, then director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, it is one evening that will continue to resonate long after you hear it.
