Lost Martin Luther King Speech found in archives!

In 1967 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was invited to be honored at Tyneside  in the UK. He was awarded a degree at the commencement and invited to briefly speak, which he did, without notes. There was a diary noting his arrival and participation, but no other documentation was known until a film of the event was just recently found in the college archives. It was in an archives, of all places! Imagine that. People listening then and now were/are moved. To see/hear it click here
