The Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Photo of Martin Luther King, Jr. Delivering His 'I Have a Dream' Speech, 08/28/1963On a few Martin Luther King days in the past, I have listened to the speeches and sermons of Dr. Martin Luther King on the radio. The first year I did this, I just happened upon a radio station that was airing the speeches. I was very moved by the speeches, especially the sermons, most of which I had never heard.

We can now listen or watch these speeches and sermons on websites such as Martin Luther King Online. This website has the text and video of many of King's speeches. It also has public domain photographs like the one displayed here. These photographs are free to use in projects, papers, reports and websites.

Hope everyone has a nice and peaceful Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
