Martin Luther King’s words that you may know… but have you heard them?
"Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. [applause] And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!"
Listening to the Mountaintop from the desktop
On my player today are great speeches from African Americans in the past 100 years. Currently I’m listening to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Not "I Have a Dream", but his last speech, "I’ve Been to the Mountaintop" (Memphis, Tennessee – April 3, 1968).
