PRA Archive #: 

Speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. on the use of nonviolence in the civil rights movement recorded at the University of California, Berkeley. Introduced by U.C. Berkeley's Dean Hart and interviewed by Charles Levy. Dr. King opens his speech with a history of Africans in America, starting with the year 1619. He moves to the years 1955 and 1956, focusing on the Montgomery bus boycott. He describes the spirit and organization behind the successful protest: "...it was ultimately more honorable to walk in dignity than ride in humiliation." King concludes with a commitment to nonviolent resistance in the Gandhi tradition, and outlines what this philosophical approach means to him.
