Part of MSU\'s 50/60 Project. Continuous audio loop of Martin Luther King, Jr.\'s speech, delivered August 28, 1963, during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. We invite the community to sit still and LISTEN to King\'s famous Lincoln Memorial speech. Not only as a composition of powerful words, but also as a composition of captivating sounds shaped together like a symphony. To use MLK\'s own words \"a symphony of brotherhood.\" This speech is full of illuminating surprises that will move the listener for their beauty and artistry. The College of Music appreciates the generosity of the I Have a Dream Foundation for allowing the public mechanical sounding of Martin Luther King\'s Lincoln Memorial speech.
