King’s First Dream
- This event has passed.
Join Professor of English Jason Miller as he speaks on the legacy of the recently unearthed 1962 speech that Martin Luther King, Jr. gave at a segregated high school in Rocky Mount, North Carolina several months prior to his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington. Until recently, no one beyond the crowd present for the speech in 1962 had heard it. Recovered from a Rocky Mount library and remastered, the speech is now believed to have inspired King’s pivotal I Have a Dream speech delivered in Washington nine months later.
