How is there going to be peace if there is no justice? In efforts to promote justice for all, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. pushed for peace through direct action, social change, civil and human rights. Hear how activist and educator Angela Davis was profoundly impacted by the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham AL. How could Ossie Davis speak so eloquently the day after Dr. King's transition? What was Fammy Lou Hamer's role during the Civil Rights Movement? Sharing her husband's vision, Coretta Scott King spoke publicly on peace three weeks after the assassination of Dr. King. Bay Area Attorney Charles Bonner, who grew up in Alabama, was a student organizer and led demonstrations against the injustices of racism and discrimination. Bonner recounts some of those experiences. Berkeley Attorney Howard Moore, General Counsel for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Federation of Southern Cooperatives, talks about the significance of social change. These are the Voices for Peace and Social Change you hear today on the Radio Chronicles, stories of ordinary folk caught up, in extraordinary times. Music includes Peace (Jimmy Cliff), Upside Down (Gregory Isaacs), War (Bob Marley), Putting Up Resistance (Beres Hammond and U-Roy), Choice of Colours (Meditations), Greasy Oily Freedom (John McKay), How Long and Why?
