We honor the life, legacy and call to consciousness of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Oct. 11, 1962, Dr. King spoke in Wait Chapel as part of the College Union Lecture Series. Dr. King used some of the same language and phrasing he later used in his “I Have a Dream” speech in his address at Wake Forest.

@zsrspecial has an audio recording and transcript of this address in its holdings.
