Hear Martin Luther King Jr.'s long-lost interview

NEED TO KNOW
  • It's been 45 years since MLK's assassination
  • Hear his long-lost interview

On April 3, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech to a group of striking sanitation workers. It's known as the "Mountain Top" speech, and many see it as the civil rights leader's self-delivered eulogy.

He told the workers, "I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land." Less than a day later, an assassin’s bullet would kill him.

In remembrance of the 45th anniversary of his death, listen to King’s long-lost interview from 1960, which was uncovered last year in a Tennessee attic.
