Martin Luther King Jr. In His Own Words

Martin Luther King Jr. day fell on January 16th, a day after his birthday. For this story I decided to let Dr. King speak. I used archived audio from the National Museum of African American History and Culture. During the course of his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement he was arrested over 30 times. Please enjoy Dr. King in his own words.
