Lost 1965 MLK sermon from Hollywood Synagogue


More on MLK! I wasn’t even looking for it this time, just browsing my newsfeed. Dr. King’s delivery is much more sedate in this sermon than at other times, but just a few minutes into it I am finding it well worth the listen.
Lost 1965 MLK sermon from Hollywood Synagogue

Cory Doctorow:

Dennis sez, “In February, 1965, Martin Luther King, Jr., was invited to give a sermon for Friday evening Shabbat services at Temple Israel of Hollywood. Unless you listened to this tape in the Temple’s archives, or were there that night, this speech hasn’t been heard since.”
