The excerpts from the speeches of Dr. King were from CD "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr: In Search Of Freedom."  Thanks to Clint Harding, the Voice of Saturday Morning, host of Blue Highways on KDHX, for kindly allowing me to use this CD from his collection. A great deal of the music played on this tribute program is on the Smithsonian Folkways CD collection "Voices Of The Civil Rights Movement: Black American Freedom Songs, 1960-1966."


Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
