MS of MLK at podium: "It seems that I can hear the God of history saying; that was not enough, but I was hungry and you fed me not, I was naked and you clothed me not, I was devoid of a decent sanitary house to live in and ye provided no shelter for me, and consequently you cannot enter the kingdom of greatness. If you do it on to the least of these my brethren, you do it unto me.

B&W MS of MLK speaking. "You re caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. And whatever affects one directly, effects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be, until you are what you ought to be. The rich man can never be what he ought to be, until the poor man is what he ought to be. John Donne thought it a hundred years ago and placed it in graphic terms, No man is an island, entire of itself, every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. And then he goes on toward the end to say, Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

COLOR shot of MLK speaking at rally: "And I oppose the war in Vietnam because I love America. I speak out against it not in anger, but with anxiety and sorrow in my heart, and above all with a passionate desire, to see our beloved country stand as the moral example of the world. I speak out against this war because I am disappointed with America. There can be no great disappointment where there is no great love."

MS of MLK saying, "For those who say to me, Stick to civil rights. I have another answer; that is that I fought too long and too hard, now, against segregated public accommodations, to end up segregating my moral concern. I m not going to do that. Others can so what they want to do. That s their business. If other civil rights leaders for various reasons refuse, or can t take a stand or have to go along with the administration, that s their business. But I must say tonight, that I know that justice is indivisible, injustice anywhere is a threat for justice everywhere."
