Where Do We Go From Here?
“While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is often remembered for his dream of and fight for equality and freedom for all, many do not realize how keenly focused he was on economic issues. Dr. King believed that without economic opportunity, we do not have the chance to pursue happiness. It was, in fact, while planning the Poor People’s March, a dramatic stand on economic issues, that his voice was forever silenced. In his final book, Dr. King posed the question, “Where do we go from here?” – a question many of us are asking in today’s unpredictable economy. We believe Kingonomics 2013 offers definitive knowledge, access and opportunity to address today’s economic climate and beyond. We welcome your involvement, collaboration and support.” + Rodney Sampson, Author Kingonomics; Chair, Kingonomics 2013
