When Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy is discussed it’s a sure bet one of his famous speeches is a big part of that discussion.

His I Have A Dream speech has come to represent the ideals of the Civil Rights Movement, and the Speech at the Great March on Detroit and The Birth Of A New Nation are both considered socially and historically important speeches that helped shape the nation into what it is today. 

It turns out King's catalog of oration has been missing one important item for many years- a speech he gave at UCLA on April 27, 1965. The long lost recording of this speech was recently discovered in a storage room by archivist Derek Bolin and chair of UCLA Department of Communication Studies Tim Groeling, and thanks to their efforts to preserve history we can now hear the speech in its entirety here
