Today is the official celebration of the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr., who was born on January 15, 1929. Over the course of today, you will hear many people talking about King’s legacy, including Milwaukee’s Valerie Daniels-Carter speaking from the state capitol and former U.S. Commission on Civil Rights chair Mary Frances Berry at Madison’s Overture Center — both of which will be carried live right here on WORT. But here on the Monday Eight O’Clock Buzz, we feel it’s important to hear from the man himself, speaking in his own words. So, here is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking on March 5, 1965, at the conclusion of the fifty-mile march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.
