on april 16, 1960, a 31-year old martin luther king jr. made his first of five appearances on the nbc news show meet the press.  facing a four-person panel of reporters, he addresses the merits of the sit-in protests, handling conflicts between local, federal and moral law, the perceived violent results of a nonviolent approach, the civil rights act of 1960 and interracial marriage.  it’s a good look at seeing how some things have changed and others remained the same.  part 1 is below with parts 2 and 3 after the jump.  thanks to brother west.
