We are faced with that glaring economic problem.

It radiates in our communities like the rays of the beaming sun. In every community, people are hungry, unemployment is rising like a tidal wave, housing conditions are embarrassingly poor, crime and juvenile delinquency are spreading like the dew drops on an early fall morning. All of these conditions result from the economic problem. Moreover, the economic problem has brought about one of the most conflicts of our time, the conflict between capital and labor. This internal war between labor and capital is a basic problem within every community. — MLK, “The Task of Christian Leadership Training for Education in the Local Community,” 1955
