Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. With His Words

We’re all familiar with Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, but this Monday, CBS This Morning (my favorite morning TV habit) featured the audio of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “American Dream” speech given on Feb. 5, 1964, at Drew University, interleaving the recording of his words with two of his children and one grandchild reading his words. It was very inspiring.

You can watch that well-produced segment online at: https://www.cbsnews.com/video/mlk-jr-s-children-grandchild-read-his-american-dream-speech/
