'I've Been to the Mountaintop' — Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Santitation Workers Speech Was 45 Years Ago Today

King spoke on April 3, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. The Wikipedia entry is here. He was assassinated the next day. I showed this clip during my classes on civil rights a couple of weeks ago. One of my students, a conservative who is Vietnamese, told me that watching it almost brought her to tears.
