By the end of his life, Martin Luther King realized the validity of violence
Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib

I don’t see his words as reflecting an approval of violence, but rather a recognition of why a steam pot blows when the steam cannot escape by other means. He did not realize the validity of violence but did realize that extreme frustration can erupt into violence.

As result, I think your title for this piece is recklessly misleading and unnecessarily inflammatory.
