His speeches stirred a generation to change - and outlined a practical way to economic freedom and true democracy. His words would help bring about the end of a brutally unequal system - and would show a timeless method for achieving fairness and justice for all.

These 12 moving speeches voiced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are original recordings collected here for the first time ever. In addition, some of the world's most renowned leaders and theologians share with you their reflections on these speeches, and give priceless firsthand testimony on the events that inspired their delivery.

This audio takes you behind the scenes on an astonishing spoken historical journey - from a small, crowded church in Montgomery, AL, where "The Birth of a New Nation" ignited the modern civil rights movement; to the center of the nation's conscience; to the Mason Temple in Memphis, where more than 10,000 people heard Dr. King give his last transcendent speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop," the night before his assassination.

Narrators include Andrew Young, Coretta Scott King, Reverend Leon H. Sullivan, Hon. Walter E. Fauntroy, Yolanda King, Dr. Dorothy I. Height, Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, Martin Luther King III, Rep. John Lewis, Ambassador George McGovern, and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Twelve Great Speeches
Reviewer LOLDavid
 January 17, 2011
These are truly the twelve landmark speeches of King’s life including: his speech uniting people for the Montgomery bus boycott, his funeral eulogy for four girls who were killed in a church bombing, his “I Have a Dream” speech, his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize, his statement against the Vietnam War, and finally the prophetic speech he gave the night before he was assassinated. These original recordings are how you want to here the ideas of Martin Luther King. Like King’s sermon recordings “A Knock at Midnight”, I cannot recommend these speeches enough. Each speech has an introduction by someone closely related to King and they give each speech a historical context.
