Today I went looking for Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have A Dream” speech, on the occasion of Martin Luther King Day here in the US.

Although I’ve seen the documentary and heard the sound bite version of the speech many many times by now, today is the first time in a long while I’ve listened to the whole thing beginning to end, and thought I would share this.

Internet Pro Radio provides an MP3 podcast of the entire speech here (1.9MB, 16:13)

There’s also a full transcript here. See also Wikipedia.

You don’t need an iPod to play this, it’s should work with nearly any computer.

If you’re in a hurry, the “famous” part that’s usually excerpted for classes and media commentary starts at around 10 minutes in, but you really need to listen from the beginning to get the full impact.
