Maybe not so natural, but still one of my favorite P.E. songs is this one, when in 1991, the states of Arizona and New Hampshire were the last hold outs to declare Martin Luther King Jr. Day a holiday:

More natural is this one, recorded three days after King’s death at the Westbury Music Festival:

I ended the playlist, just as I started with U2:

So what are songs that you associate with the memory and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? Another post I wrote yesterday about MLK Day: One man come in the name of love.

  1. If you like Public Enemy, I think you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It is a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives in the context of a few songs that matter to them. The interviews tend to focus on questions of justice like racism, sexism, sexual violence, white privilege, etc. I hope you enjoy it.
