MLK: not worried

Here's the last part of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 1968 speech the night before he was assassinated. Like Malcolm X, he was murdered even though government agencies were present and monitoring through the COINTELPRO program. Democracy Now has the full speech and more.

Also very interesting is a speech MLK gave the previous year, "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam."
