In the video MLK delivers a speech urging everyone to sign their own emancipation proclamation:
I come here tonight and plead with you. Believe in yourself and believe that you are somebody. I said to a group last night, — Nobody else can do this for us. No document can do this for us. No Lincolnian emancipation proclamation can do this for us. No Johnsonian civil rights bill can do this for us.
If the Negro is to be free, he must move down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign with a pen and ink of self-assertive manhood his own emancipation proclamation.
