All India Radio Address by Martin Luther King(1959)

Listen

In February-March 1959, King and his wife Coretta Scott King travelled throughout India. King confessed to an intellectual debt to Gandhi. 

During that time, he delivered a message to India and Indians on All India Radio (AIR). That message was lost in AIR’s voluminous but chaotic archives. After much searching, AIR finally retrieved what is actually a treasure. And last weekend, on Martin Luther King Day in the US, when the nation was preparing to install Barack Obama as the 44th US president, National Public Radio played that long lost message by King to Indians and the world.

His sisters

Maya Soetoro-Ng: Age 38. Born to Obama’s mother and Ann Dunham’s second husband, Lolo Soetoro, Soetoro-Ng teaches high school in Honolulu. She’s married to Konrad Ng, a Chinese-Canadian professor.

His brothers

Abo Obama: Age 40. This half-sibling manages a telephone store in Kenya.

Bernard Obama: Age 38. Bernard works as an auto-parts supplier in Kenya.

Mark Ndesandjo: Born to Barack Sr.’s third wife, Ruth Ndesandjo, Mark is Stanford-educated and lives in Shenzhen, China. He exports Chinese-made goods to the U.S. and reportedly shuns the spotlight.

David Ndesandjo: David was killed in motorcycle accident.

George Obama: Age 26. Obama’s youngest half-brother. Homeless for years, now living in a Nairobi slum, George is working to become a car mechanic. About his situation, George told CNN: “I was brought up well. I live well even now.”

At an event Wednesday in Raleigh, North Carolina, Obama said McCain has spent the last few days calling him “every name in the book.””I don’t know what’s next. By the end of the week, he’ll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich,” Obama said.
