MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: THE ESSENTIAL BOX SET The Landmark Speeches and Sermons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Martin Luther King, Jr., Keith David, Jay Gregory, Various Readers

History • 16 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2009

This remarkable box set of CDs can be cherished for its historic collection of Dr. King’s speeches and sermons but also because it's just a beautiful package, with photos and quotes on the slip jackets and discs. The discs also helpfully list details of the specific speeches and audiences. That's before we even get to the sound parts, for which this is eminently collectable. Originally released as A CALL TO CONSCIENCE and A KNOCK AT MIDNIGHT, the speeches and recordings are introduced by ministers, activists, and world leaders, providing historical context and balance to the live sound recordings of Dr. King. The power of the speeches, and of King's oratorial style, is essential to understanding his impact on his time, and on history. A collectable, and essential, audio program. R.F.W.
