Martin Luther King, Jr.

What do today's students, and many adults, know about Martin Luther King, Jr.?

That today was his birthday?

That he gave a speech?

That he marched?

That he was killed?

Do they know any details?

Jason Riley, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, tells us about Dr. King in the 5-minute video from PragerU.

I was fortunate to hear Dr. King speak. On October 15, 1962 he spoke at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. I sat at the left end of the first row in front of the stage. The podium was about 20 feet from me. I didn't meet him that day or shake his hand. I liked what I heard.

If you'd like to know what he said that day, you can read his words here.
