This video examines Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s last speech in which he talks about having been stabbed and learning had he sneezed, the tip of the knife which was near his aorta, would have killed him and he would have bled to death. He talks about all that he accomplished in what would be his final speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop.” Dr. King spoke on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple (Church of God in Christ Headquarters) in Memphis, Tennessee. He was assassinated the next day (April 4) while standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in downtown Memphis. Listen to a part of this famous speech that teaches us more about the man who changed the world.
