Dr. Martin Luther King jr. “I Have A Dream” Speech 50 Year Anniversary

On this day in 1963, 50 years ago, Dr. King delivered a speech that would be apart of American History forever.  50 years ago the US Government/FBI also had plan to kill Dr. King.

This is a letter sent to MLK anonymously by the FBI. It attempted to get King to kill himself before he could receive the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. Accompanying the letter was a cassette that “contained allegedly incriminating audio recordings of King with women in various hotel rooms”
