To commemorate MLK Day, “Democracy Now!” featured a lengthy tribute to the civil rights icon, including footage of several inspiring moments such as his “Beyond Vietnam” speech, delivered at New York City’s Riverside Church on April 4, 1967, a year before his death, and his last speech, from April 3, 1968.
