Selma 1965

Program #KINM004. Recorded in Selma, AL on March 07, 1965.

Archival sound from one of the most important actions of the Civil Rights movement. Features a 30-minute speech by Dr Martin Luther King, Jr on "The Pharaohs Never Give Up Easily." Many consider the Selma to Montgomery marches, marred by state and local police attacks, as political and emotional peaks of the movement. The day of this speech by Dr. King is known as 'Bloody Sunday.'

Speaker(s):

Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, Nobel Peace Prize winner, is one of the 20th century's most enduring figures. He advocated and practiced civil disobedience and non-violence. He said, "Christ gave us the goals and Mahatma Gandhi the tactics." He rose to national prominence during the epic Montgomery bus boycott and then went on to spearhead a movement which ended juridical apartheid in the U.S. He was assassinated on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis on April 4, 1968.
