There are only a few speeches in history as iconic and as widely quoted as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, but how many of us have actually listened to the whole thing? So today, to honor Dr. King and his powerful words, here’s his speech, in its entirety, courtesy of NPR.
If you can’t listen, you’ll find the full transcript as well, but there’s something to be said about hearing his voice speak them. We hope you can find a quiet moment to play this for yourself and your kids.
