"Building on all of the deep resources of empathy and compassion that seemed so richly and naturally a part of his life, (Martin Luther King Jr) King appeared determined not only to pay attention but to insist that his organization and his nation focus themselves and their resources on dozens of poor, exploited black communities - and especially their desperate young men, whose broken lives were crying out for new, humane possibilities in the midst of the wealthiest nation in the world. I hear him preaching at his Ebenezer Church in Atlanta: 'I choose to identify with the underprivileged. I choose to identify with the poor. I choose to give my life for the hungry…. This is the way I'm going. If it means suffering a little bit, I'm going that way. If it means sacrificing, I'm going that way. If it means dying for them, I'm going that way, because I heard a voice say, 'Do something for others.'"
