Martin Luther King speech - Airs Jan. 11
The year was 1967 and Martin Luther King, civil rights leader, Baptist preacher and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, agreed to deliver the prestigious Massey lectures on CBC Radio. His title, was "Conscience for Change." Although these lectures were recorded more than forty years ago, King’s words have lost none of their relevance as we still try to come to terms with many of the same issues. NPR has links to more of King's speeches here. American Public Media's "Say It Plain, Say It Loud" is also an excellent source of civil rights movement speeches. The APM special is here.
