It's 50 years since Martin Luther King came to Newcastle (13 November 2017) to receive an honorary doctorate from Newcastle University for his work for civil rights.  In his acceptance speech, he spoke about the three urgent and great problems of racism, poverty and war.  Watch his speech here http://freedomcity2017.com/ - scroll down the page to find it.

Freedom City 2017 is a programme of events across Newcastle and Gateshead to mark the anniversary and to inspire people today to address racism, poverty and war.
