Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader and visionary of the civil rights movement, was first and foremost a preacher. This unique collection features a selection of Dr. King’s best sermons—some not heard since he first delivered them—recorded at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, and in other churches where he carried his ministry. They include “Rediscovering Lost Values,” “A Knock at Midnight,” “The American Dream,” and “When Jesus Called a Man a Fool.” With fiery words of wisdom and a passion for justice, Reverend King inspired people everywhere to perform extraordinary acts of courage and ignited one of the most influential movements of the twentieth century. Each sermon is introduced by a distinguished member of today’s spiritual community, including Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker, Dr. Joan Campbell, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.   Download and start listening now!
