For MLK’s 94th Anniversary: Great Speeches to Edify and Uplift the Soul

The vision for a world of peaceful cooperation and brotherhood which Martin Luther King willingly gave his life represents a promethean fire, is required more today than ever before.

As civilization is confronted with some of the most dangerous challenges threatening global war, and a plunge into a new Dark Age, the tests we will collectively be faced with can best be met by rekindling those creative fires of love and understanding that shaped Martin Luther King’s ministry and his life of strategic thinking.

It is with this hope for a better age of humanity that the Rising Tide Foundation presents a collection of the most powerful speeches and sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
