The North East Area Labor Council will feature a showing of the 1993 documentary "At the River I Stand" on Monday, Jan. 21, 6 p.m., at the Iron Range Operating Engineers Local 49 Hall, 8381 Enterprise Rd, Mt. Iron. The film chronicles the AFSCME Memphis Sanitation workers strike in 1968, where Dr. King gave his famous "I've been to the mountaintop" speech. He was assassinated the following day. The film showing is free and all are welcome.
The fabulous, prophetic, chilling speech King gave in Memphis the night before he was shot is required viewing:
