Celluloid Bachelor #47: Martin Luther King Jr.'s Final Public Words

Powerful parting words from the most important man of the American 20th Century, and one of the most important since the founding of the republic. Watch the perfect delivery, the impassioned righteousness, the exhaustion as he makes his way back to his chair, where his colleagues and friends help him sit as he collapses.

The next day, a sniper's bullet took him down.
