Publisher's Summary

Where Do We Go From Here is a selection from A Call to Conscience, a milestone collection of Dr. King's most influential and best-known speeches. Presented here with an introduction written and read by Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

Compiled by Stanford historian Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of the King Papers Project, and by contributing editor Kris Shepard, A Call to Conscience takes you behind the scenes on an astonishing historical journey, from the small, crowded church in Montgomery, Alabama, where "The Birth of a New Nation" ignited the modern civil rights movement; to the center of the nation's capital, where "I Have a Dream" echoed through a nation's conscience; to the Mason Temple in Memphis, where over 10,000 people heard Dr. King give his last, transcendent speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop", the night before his assassination. In 12 important introductions, some of the world's most renowned leaders and theologians, Andrew Young, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and Mrs. Rosa Parks, among others, share with you their reflections on these speeches and give priceless firsthand testimony on the events that inspired their delivery.

Expressing a deeply felt faith in democracy, the power of loving change, and a self-deprecating humor, A Call to Conscience is Dr. King speaking today. It is a unique, unforgettable record of the words that rallied millions, forever changed the face of America, and even today shape our deepest personal hopes and dreams for the future.

Timeless!

Every American should listen to Martin Luther King's speech. His words are as valuable in modern times (2009) as when he first spoke them.

An unfinished message of economic empowerment!

Loved it. I have my family listening to the speech. It how far Blacks have come in certain areas and how some things haven't improved in 50 years.

Brilliant orator.

I'm listening to this on the 50th anniversary of his assassination. His speeches are moving and still relevant today. There is a lot we can learn from him.

Monumental...King is TIMELESS!

MLK chronicles the undying willingness of the black man in America and tools and social strategies to eliminate injustice.

Same issues still plague us

Dr. King's analysis and insights were spot on and are enduring decades later as America continues to struggle with issues of race, poverty, and power dynamics.

A Comprehensive King

We often learn MLK as a caricature created by individuals with agendas. These speeches present a compassionate, educated, religious, militant, humble, subversive, entrepreneurial and complex man. Praise God!
