New Audio, Transcript of MLK Speech

From a Wake Forest University News Center Item:

In October of 1962, more than ten months before delivering his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, Martin Luther King Jr. stepped to the podium in Wait Chapel and spoke to a crowd of 2,200.

Nearly 50 years later, the public can experience that moment in Wake Forest history by listening to the audio recording and reading the transcript of King’s speech, available for the first time online through the digital archives at Z. Smith Reynolds library.

The audio recording, transcript and analysis of the speech are available on the library website. The project was a collaboration between Susan Faust, assistant to the provost emeritus and adjunct instructor of communication; Katherine Gill, director of special projects and university archivist; and Associate Professor of Communication John Llewellyn.
