Did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Beta-Test His "I Have a Dream" Speech 17 Months Earlier at Then-Oakwood College, In 1962?
Huntsville, AL (August 20, 2013) -- As much of the free world prepares to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.-led 1963 March on Washington and his famed "I Have A Dream" speech, Seventh-day Adventist Church-run Oakwood University School of Religion Dean Dr. Mervyn A. Warren recently shared with WAAY-TV (ABC) his personal tape recording of the civil right leader's March 19, 1962 address at then - Oakwood College - Dr. King's lone north Alabama visit - in which he concluded with his now-legendary "from every mountainside, . . . free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last" - 17 months before the March.
