A Conversation with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On the evening of March 25, 1968, ten days before he was assassinated, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., zikhrono livrakhah, appeared at the sixty-eighth annual convention of the Rabbinical Assembly. In anticipation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 21, we invite you to read the transcript of that powerful and inspiring conversation here.
