On Monday, January 16, 2023 at 9am, Delmarva Public Media will air a special hour-long program honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr on WESM 91.3 FM and WSDL 90.7 FM.

The program, entitled MLK: Three Landmark Speeches is produced by Peace Talks Radio and highlights three key speeches of the American Civil Rights leader and Nobel Peace Laureate. Producer Paul Ingles will also interview two leading King scholars.

The featured MLK speeches include “Beyond Vietnam,” in which Dr. King came out publicly and explicitly in opposition to the Vietnam War.

Secondly, Dr. King’s remarks in March of 1965 at the conclusion of the Selma to Montgomery marches, was considered a turning point in the struggle for Voting Rights and equality for African Americans.

Finally, the famous “Been to the Mountaintop” speech from April of 1968, just one day before his assassination in Memphis, TN.
