    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 6: MRS. GANDHI: DR. KING'S DREAM EMBRACED THE POOR AND THE OPPRESSED OF ALL LANDS. HIS WORK ENOBLED US. HE SPOKE OF THE RIGHT OF MAN TO SURVIVE AND RECOGNISED THREE THREATS TO THE SURVIVAL OF MAN: RACIAL INJUSTICE, POVERTY AND WAR. HE REALISED THAT EVEN UNDER THE LAMP OF AFFLUENCE, WHICH WAS HELD ALOFT BY SCIENCE, LAY THE SHADOW OF POVERTY, COMPELLING TWO THIRDS OF THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD TO EXIST IN HUNGER AND IN WANT.



    SEQ 8: MRS. KING: IN A PROFOUND WAY, MARTIN LUTHER KING CONTINUES THE STRUGGLE FOR PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN MEN AND NATIONS, MORE POWERFULLY IN DEATH THAN IN LIFE. FOR HIS SPIRIT HAS BEEN LOOSED UPON A VIOLENT AND LOVELESS WORLD. AND EVEN AS GANDHI'S SPIRIT MADE ITS WAY HALF-WAY ROUND THE WORLD TO INSPIRE THE PEOPLE OF MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA, WITH THE METHOD OF NON-VIOLENCE, WE SEE STIRRINGS OF THE SPIRIT IN LATIN AMERICA, IN THE SOUTH OF ITALY, AND AMONG THE CHICHANO OR MEXICAN-AMERICAN POPULATION OF CALIFORNIA. THE CHALLENGE TO INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING WHICH WE NOW FACE IS AT ONCE A CHALLENGE BETWEEN NATIONS AND A CHALLENGE WITHIN NATIONS. EACH AND EVERY NATION OF THE WORLD IS PARTITIONED IN TWO PIECES...A RICH NATION AND A POOR NATION.
