Martin Luther King, Easter Sermon April 21, 1957

Looking around for something for Easter I found this pdf of The Reverend Martin Luther King jr.'s Easter sermon given in 1957. I was six when he gave it. It was the world of full blown American apartheid, in which violence was a tool of racial terror, in which young children were murdered by racists. It's good to remember that experience is well within living memory.
