Description

Coretta Scott King (1927 - 2006) delivers a speech on the civil rights movement at a peace march in Central Park, New York on April 27th, 1968. The march took place three weeks after the assassination of King's husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. King reads from the handwritten notes of her husband's incomplete speech for this occasion, his "10 Commandments on Vietnam," his dedication to the poor people of America and the world, and asks for women's support and participation in the Poor People's Movement. King closes her speech by reading Langston Hughes's poem, "Mother to Son.".
