SacTV has created a Sacramento Video Library featuring
hundreds of videos that tell the region's story. It's a site
for both residents and visitors to explore local people and places
captured on video.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. visited Sacramento on October 16, 1967 to deliver a speech at
Sacramento State about the civil rights movement. This 86-second KCRA clip of the speech shows
King talking about how the plight of the poor had worsened the last few years following
President Johnson's signing of the Civil Rights Act. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968.
