Martin Luther King’s 'I Have a Dream' speech is one of the most powerful and passionate political statements of the 20th century.

The programme is introduced by Clayborne Carson, director of the Martin Luther King Jr Research and Education Institute at Stanford University. Professor Carson was chosen by Dr King's widow to edit and publish the papers of her late husband.
