Video Archive

The CPI is currently developing an archive of videos relevant to issues of poverty and inequality. We present below a few classic recordings and will be supplementing them with others in the coming months.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our grateful thanks to director Christopher Speeth for generously donating the use of his valuable and rare Martin Luther King footage.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Research & Education Project at Stanford University: In 1985, Coretta Scott King asked Stanford historian Clayborne Carson to edit and publish The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr. Since then, the Dr. King Papers Project has engaged in a broad range of activities illuminating the Nobel Peace laureate's life and the movements he inspired.
