Description:

In this WSB newsfilm clip, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaks to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on July 19, 1962 and affirms the principles of nonviolence, stating that the Civil Rights movement seeks a community at peace with itself, one in which millions of African Americans vote. He explains that the movement will not obey unjust laws or submit to unjust practices, but will try in words and actions to witness truth as they see it. The movement, he says, will always be willing to talk and seek fair compromise, and will be willing if necessary to suffer violence, arrest, and death. King also notes that the federal government's program of law enforcement will be indispensable in helping the movement achieve its goals peacefully. The National Press Club was organized in March 1908, and integrated in 1955.
