• Little Known Black History Fact: Rare MLK Speech Tape

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Dr. King gave his speech entitled “Religious Witness for Human Dignity,”  to a crowd of 8,000 at Goodwin Stadium, months prior to the passage of the Civil Rights Act. Since finding the rare piece of history, Mary Scanlon kindly donated the tape to Arizona State and it is now available online until the end of June.

    At the same school in which Dr. King spoke in 1964 delivering a message of hope and civil rights for all people of color, a chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, a white fraternity, was banned from the school after they were cited for a MLK day celebration featuring racially offensive epithets.
