Martin Luther King Day, January 20, 2014 …

Martin Luther King Day, January 20, 2014 …

Martin Luther King Jr.

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.,  A Testament Of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches 

The following is a rarely heard speech from August 1967.

Dr. King spoke about the historical ramifications of slavery and inequality–with the strong belief that there was still so much work to do and unwincingly put himself on the line as a leader who would never stand down from what he felt was necessary to do.

He gave the speech at the National Association of TV and Radio Announcers convention.
