Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Most Famous Speeches

If you are unfamiliar with Freegal, it is a service provided through the DC Public Library that allows you to download three mp3s per week, which are then yours to keep forever — they do not need to be returned and they will never expire.

Normally, those of us at the library talk about Freegal's amazing music collection, but did you know that Freegal's catalog contains spoken word recordings as well?

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, check out Freegal's collection of his speeches in audio format. Simply log in to Freegal using your DC Public Library card here, and search for "Martin Luther King Jr." under the artist field.
