Fifty years after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., how are social justice activists in the US remembering the iconic African-American civil rights leader?
Critics of King's mainstream portrayal say his "dream" was more than just desegregation and voting rights for black Americans. King was a Baptist minister who supported democratic socialism and spoke out against US imperialism. Near the end of his life, he organised a "Poor People's Campaign" for economic justice, yet alienated some progressive allies by publicly denouncing the Vietnam War.
In the decades since his death, has MLK's history been whitewashed or co-opted? And how does King's legacy influence the work of present-day activists? We’ll speak to those working to #ReclaimMLK history. Join the conversation at 1930GMT.
