it was amazing

I actually listened to this on audio. Multiple times.
I would not recommend reading these speeches, but HEARING them on audio from MLK's own mouth. The introductions are great and provide some history to where he was when he wrote and gave each speech.
I cannot say how many times throughout these speeches I had goosebumps on my skin. Truly incredible and something that every American should listen to at least once.

The best of this group for me was "Give us the Ballot", "Where do we go from here?" and the absolutely riveting, most powerful speech I have ever heard to this day is the last one in this collection: "I've been to the mountaintop" - a speech he gave the day before he was assassinated in 1960. The first and last tracks are, of course, unforgettable.
