For the first time ever, twenty-four original recordings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from his iconic "I Have A Dream" speech to his stirring sermon "A Knock At Midnight," are collected together in this treasured box set. His landmark speeches that echoed around the world and the more intimate sermons from the churches where he carried out his ministry are just as moving and meaningful today as they were when the great orator first expressed them.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speeches stirred a nation to change - and his calls to peaceful action and refusal to turn to despair or violence in the face of injustice continue to inspire the world today. Each of the twelve sermons and speeches collected here is accompanied by an introduction by other renowned theologians and champions of civil rights, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Rosa Parks, Reverend Billy Graham, Bishop TD Jakes, Aretha Franklin, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and Representative John Lewis, who share their priceless firsthand testimony on the events that inspired the delivery of King's message.
This definitive box set includes all the landmark speeches of the great orator and American leader Martin Luther King, Jr., from his inspirational "I Have a Dream" to his firey "Give Us the Ballot." Comprised of recordings previously included in A Call to Conscience and A Knock at Midnight, THE ESSENTIAL BOX SET is a must-have for any home, library, or school collection.

This remarkable box set of CDs can be cherished for its historic collection of Dr. King's speeches and sermons but also because it's just a beautiful package, with photos and quotes on the slip jackets and discs. The discs also helpfully list details of the specific speeches and audiences. That's before we even get to the sound parts, for which this is eminently collectable. Originally released as A CALL TO CONSCIENCE and A KNOCK AT MIDNIGHT, the speeches and recordings are introduced by ministers, activists, and world leaders, providing historical context and balance to the live sound recordings of Dr. King. The power of the speeches, and of King's oratorial style, is essential to understanding his impact on his time, and on history. A collectable, and essential, audio program. R.F.W.
