MLK's Drum Major for Justice Speech

Today's Free Resource

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. "I Am a Drum Major for Justice"

On this MLK Day listen to an inspiring sermon from Martin Luther King, Jr. In this speech, delivered in the year he was assassinated, Dr. King looks back on his life and hopes he will be remembered as a "Drum Major for Justice". King sees the importance in the "drum major instinct" that drives us to lead and be recognized, but points out through Christ's teachings that the greatest leaders are those who serve others and put justice before their own gain. This 20-minute sermon is available on streaming audio from History and Politics Out Loud and can be played through Real Player (the last sentence gets cut off but it is the full speech).

Meeting Hate with Love: Stories of King and Gandhi

In addition to archival sound from the civil rights movement, we hear interviews with King associates Dr. Vincent Harding, a King speechwriter and first director of the King Center in Atlanta; Dorothy Cotton, who served as Education Director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; and Rev. John Cartwright, a theology classmate of King. The second segment provides reflections on Rev. King's inspiration for non-violent change, Mahatma Gandhi of India. Again, archival audio is blended with fascinating remarks by Gandhi's grandson, Dr. Arun Gandhi, who as a troubled youth was tutored for an hour each day by his famous grandfather. He was interviewed at the University of Rochester, where Dr. Gandhi directs the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence.

MLK Out Loud

LearnOutLoud.com is very pleased to present this resource of audio and video titles about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because Dr. King was such a great orator, his ideas are best experienced through the many speeches and sermons he gave throughout his lifetime. His speeches serve as milestones in the civil rights movement, and their passionate cry for social and racial justice is just as relevant today as it was in King's lifetime.
