During the month of February, Morehead State Public Radio will be airing specials for Black History Month. During the last year of his life, Dr. King underwent a transformation. He had moved beyond integration. Having seen how the political and economic systems worked, he was talking about curtailing the vast resources being used to fund the Vietnam war and redistributing them to uplift the nation's poor. This made him "the most dangerous Negro in America," according to FBI Direct J. Edgar Hoover. "King's Last March" hosted by Stephen Smith and produced by American RadioWorks provide a look into the factors that caused Dr. King to abandon political niceties and say things even his political partners did not want said.
