Martin Luther King, Jr.:
We Shall Overcome CD
Martin Luther King, Jr. embraced Gandhi's principles of non-violent resistance and civil disobedience and applied them to challenge the unjust, discriminatory practices employed by a predominantly white society against black people. These principles guided him as he articulated with a persuasive, spellbinding, emotional intensity the injustices and indignities practiced against his race and against the other colored peoples of the world. In 1964 Dr. King won the coveted Nobel Peace Prize and accepted the prize in Oslo, Norway.
Here in this second volume of highlights of major MLK speeches, we find Mr. King delivering a major speech, recorded in 1966, highlighted by "The American Dream" and "We Shall Overcome". Two years later he would be shot by an assassin while standing on the balcony of a motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
