This introduction offers a wide overview of the campaign, resituating it in the context of the post 1965 civil rights struggle but also in regards to King’s thinking on economic inequality. It presents the “insurrection of the Poor” as the offspring of an embattled King who embraced democratic socialism in conjonction to nonviolence.

Keywords:   Collective memory, Second phase, socialism
