This volume features the landmark speeches of his career, including "I Have a Dream"; his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize; "Beyond Vietnam", a powerful plea to end the conflict; and his eulogy for the young victims of the Birmingham church bombing.
Though the speeches refer to the conditions of the 1960s, his assertions that non-violent protest is the key to democracy, and that all humans are equal, are as timeless and powerful today as they were nearly 40 years ago.Also featured in this text are introductions from world-renowned defenders of civil rights.
Sometimes the format of audiobooks don't work too well. Not in this case. Listening to his several speeches in this format, with their context, you begin to really appreciate his style and message. Very potent listening and I'm so glad I bought this book. The speech "Where do we go from here" is truly remarkable.
