This chapter examines King’s own intellectual journey and the cogitation he underwent on his way to launching the Poor People’s Campaign. It reflects on his usage of a Marxian-infused vocabulary and his attempt to reconcile his religiosity and his determination to move beyond charity to embrace a truly solidarity-based economy. His social consciousness, abhorrent of the profit-driven society he lived in, compelled him to address the class-related issues that rendered capitalism, contingent on racial oppression, unsustainable.
