Dr. Martin Luther King Signed Sclc Booklet With I Have A Dream Speech Text:
DR. KING SIGNS A BOOKLET WITH HIS TWO MOST FAMOUS WRITINGS, THE “I HAVE A DREAM” SPEECH AND “LETTER FROM A BIRMINGHAM JAIL”
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. (1929-1968). King was an American civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate in 1964. The son of a Baptist minister, King received his B.D. from Crozier Theological Seminary and his Ph.D. from Boston University. He first gained prominence by leading a year-long, non-violent boycott of the Montgomery bus system. He later founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and became its first president. He was named Time magazine’s Man of the Year in 1964, and the next year, led a march from Selma to Montgomery to secure voting rights. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, where he was assisting in a strike by city workers.
Signed Booklet. 8 ½” x 11”. 1964. Atlanta. The SCLC Story In Words And Pictures signed “Best Wishes Martin Luther King Jr” in blue ballpoint ink on the title page. This is a stated first printing and it contains his two most famous writings, the “I Have A Dream” speech and “Letter From Birmingham Jail.” I could not locate another publication containing his two most famous works together and is autographed by Dr. King. The “I Have A Dream” speech was voted the greatest political speech of the Twentieth Century by a group of political scientists. The booklet is bound in the pictorial stiff wraps and has light scuffing to the front cover. It is in fine condition. A terrific King artifact.
