Aint No Mountain High Enough For King, 3 April 1968

Martin Luther King ‘I’ve Been to the Mountaintop’

On this Day Martin Luther King delivered his ‘I’ve Been to the Mountaintop’ speech. King made the speech one day before his assassination on the 4th April, 1968 at the Mason Temple in Memphis Tennessee. King called for unity, economic actions, boycotts, and nonviolent protest, while challenging the United States to live up to its ideals. At the end of the speech, he discusses the possibility of an untimely death.

I’ve chosen Aint No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell because as part of Kings speech;

we aren’t going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around. We aren’t going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on.

strives with fervent determination and just a smidgen of good old-fashioned leuve. enjoy.
