I Have a Dream / Letter from Birmingham Jail by Martin Luther King Jr.

I Have a Dream / Letter from Birmingham Jail
Rating:

I am the product of MLK’s “dream” as the daughter of a black mother and white father. Who knows, I might not be here if people like him hadn’t fought for racial equality and against segregation.

Brilliant free BBC audio of “I Have A Dream” read by Maya Angelou, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Ndileka Mandela (granddaughter of Nelson Mandela), Stevie Wonder, Doreen Lawrence (mother of murdered British teenager Stephen Lawrence), Malala Yousafzai (sixteen-year-old student from Swat in Pakistan, shot by the Taliban for going to school), and a few others.

Each reader seemed to have read a passage personally relevant to them, bringing new meaning to MLK’s eloquent words from his impassioned speech delivered to hundreds of thousands of people in Washington 50 years ago, the anniversary of which was yesterday (28th August 2013).

1st read: 29th Aug 2013 of BBC audio
