SummaryRecording of a radio program hosted by African People's Socialist Party Chairman Omali on January 19th, 2002, in recognition of the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., which is designated as a state holiday in the United States. This program took place on a white liberal radio station in Florida. In it, Chairman Omali challenges the political tendency of the white peace movement to censor and withhold support for the African liberation movement and denounces the practice of holding up the name of Martin Luther King, Jr., the slain African civil rights leader to try to impose a position of pacifism, or philosophical non-violence onto the movement.
