Some MLK Speeches They Didn't Tell You About
Far too many times people are fixated on or like to quote the pre-August 28, 1963 words of the Rev.

News flash: Dr. King also had a militantly pro-Black side some peeps wish to ignore. He was after all a graduate of Morehouse College and a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Since the rescheduled dedication of the MLK Jr. memorial is coming up in Washington DC tomorrow, thought I'd post videos of some of those speeches..
