A great specific take on MLK Jr.’s most famous speech. Includes the fact he was advised NOT to talk about his dream and it wasn’t until Mahalia prompted him that he switched tack and extemporaneously deliver one of the most important speeches of all time. Also appreciate the realism of portrayal of JFK.
