I thought I’d highlight Martin Luther King Jr.’s most memorable speeches. Kennedy and King: Promises and Dreams (2005) is part of a series called Great American Speeches: 80 years of political oratory. King’s moving “I have a dream” (1963) and “When a man has already died” (1965) speeches are featured in the film. Included in the DVD are also Kennedy’s inaugural address and maybe one of his most famous speeches where JFK ends with “Ich bin ein Berliner.”
For more great speeches, check out Say It Plain: A Century of Great African American Speeches (2005), which includes King’s Lecture from the New School for Social Research (1969) and his last speech “I’ve been to the mountaintop” (1968) along with 23 other great speeches. There are 2 CDs to accompany the book, so you can actually hear the speeches.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a trailer to show, but no fear. The clip below is a short biography on Martin Luther King Jr. For more information on MLK, check out Bio.True Story.
