Martin Luther King Jr. Revolution Sermon (1968)

More than 50 years ago Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his final Sunday “Remaining Awake for Revolution” sermon on March 31, 1968 at The Washington National Cathedral. Preaching from the Canterbury Pulpit, King likens the sleeping masses to Rip Van Wrinkle to issue America a wake up call against racial injustice, while dismantling the bootstrap ideologies often thrusted upon African-Americans. King also discusses three revolutions that now impact humanity: technology, weaponry, and human rights.
