We showcase three original audios of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, taken during the period of 1961 to 1967. We start with Dr. King's seminal "I have a dream" speech, during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963, in which he called for civil and economic rights and an end to racism in the United States. Delivered to over 250,000 civil rights supporters from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., the speech was a defining moment of the civil rights movement and among the most iconic speeches in American history.

We listen to two excerpts of Dr. King's numerous speaking engagements. First, he speaks to the youth about what to do in order to achieve success and fulfillment. After that, he speaks with John Freeman, of the BBC, in a close and personal interview conducted in 1961, two years before his I Have A Dream speech in Washington DC, and seven years before his death.
