Dr. King and the 1968 AFSCME Memphis Sanitation Strike
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.


On April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. traveled to Memphis to support AFSCME sanitation workers. That evening, he delivered his famous Ive Been to the Mountaintop speech to a packed room of supporters. The next day, he was assassinated.

2. Memphis Sanitation Workers Remember
Memphis Sanitation Workers Remember (stand in solidarity with workers across the country)

Memphis sanitation workers from the famous 1968 strike stand in solidarity with workers across the country who are fighting the same battle for rights today.

Herbert Parson, Alvin Turner and Joe Warren, members of AFSCME Local 1733, shared their thoughts as part of events held in Memphis this year to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and to oppose the attacks on public employees.
