“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhuman.” The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke those words at the 1966 convention of the Medical Committee for Human Rights, which was organized in 1964 to support civil-rights activists during Mississippi’s Freedom Summer.
