The final part of Martin Luther King's last speech. He delivered it on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee. The next day, King was assassinated.

The speech is referred to as his Mountaintop Speech.  In it, he seems to be predicting his own assassination.  Dr. King came to Memphis, Tenn, as he embarked upon the final stage of his movement — The Poor People's Campaign.

Leaves me — speechless.

You can shoot the dreamer, but you cannot kill the dream.

We have work, left to do.
