      Just a year before his assassination, at a Southern Christian Leadership Conference staff retreat in May 1967, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said:

      I think it is necessary for us to realize that we have moved from the era of civil rights to the era of human rights . . . [W]hen we see that there must be a radical redistribution of economic and political power, then we see that for the last twelve years we have been in a reform movement . . . That after Selma and the Voting Rights Bill, we moved into a new era, which must be an era of revolution . . . In short, we have moved into an era where we are called upon to raise certain basic questions about the whole society.

      Later that year, in December 1967, Rev. Dr. King announced the plan to bring together poor people from across the country for a new march on Washington.
