Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is known for being one of the greatest orators of the 20th Century, and perhaps in all of American history. In the 1950s and 1960s, his words led the Civil Rights movement and helped change society. Although he is best-known for helping achieve civil equality for African Americans, these speeches show that his true goal was much larger than that: he hoped to achieve acceptance for all people, regardless of race or nationality.This volume features the landmark speeches of his career including: I Have a Dream; his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize; Beyond Vietnam, a powerful plea to end the conflict; and his eulogy for the young victims of the Birmingham church bombing. Though the speeches refer to the conditions of the 1960s, his assertions that non violent protest is the key to democracy and that all humans are equal, are as timeless and powerful today as they were nearly forty years ago. Also featured in this text are introductions from world-renowned defenders of civil rights.
