Martin Luther King (civil Rights): Signed Stamp Block For Sale
[History] King Jr., Martin Luther. (1929-1968). Signed Emancipation Proclamation Centennial Stamp Block. A remarkable association item, a never hinged plate block of 1963 Emancipation Proclamation stamps, issued in the same year as King's famous 'I Have a Dream' speech, signed in blue ballpoint ink with 'Best Wishes, Martin Luther King Jr.' across the block. Very fine, a likely unique example in this format.
At the New York Civil War Centennial Commission’s Emancipation Proclamation Observance, New York City, September 12, 1962, King said that "If our nation had done nothing more in its whole history than to create just two documents, its contribution to civilization would be imperishable. The first of these documents is the Declaration of Independence and the other is that which we are here to honor tonight, the Emancipation Proclamation. All tyrants, past, present and future, are powerless to bury the truths in these declarations, no matter how extensive their legions, how vast their power and how malignant their evil...There is but one way to commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation. That is to make its declarations of freedom real; to reach back to the origins of our nation when our message of equality electrified an unfree world, and reaffirm democracy by deeds as bold and daring as the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation."
