Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

January 19, 2015

I usually post a video of the “I Have a Dream” speech on MLK Day, but this year I have a different King speech to post. Over the past year, I’ve been a part of a group of academics working to recreate King’s “A Creative Protest” speech, which is more commonly known as the “Fill Up the Jails” speech. You can listen to a voice actor performing the speech at our website.

May the vision of equality and peace that Dr. King proclaimed so fervently be realized here and now and soon and forever.
