Featuring Never-Before-Collected, Original Recordings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. --- Edited by Clayborne Carson and Kris Shepard

Presented by the Grammy-winning Producers of The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Power is the strength required to bring about social, political, and economic change.... Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love." --- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.... I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up.... I still believe that we shall overcome." --- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A Call to Conscience is a milestone collection of Dr. King's most influential and best-known speeches. Compiled by Stanford historian Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of the King Papers Project, and by contributing editor Kris Shepard, this volume takes you behind the scenes on an astonishing historical journey-from the small, crowded church in Montgomery, Alabama, where "The Birth of a New Nation" ignited the modern civil rights movement; to the center of the nation's capital, where "I Have a Dream" echoed through a nation's conscience; to the Mason Temple in Memphis, where over ten thousand people heard Dr. King give his last, transcendent speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop," the night before his assassination.

In twelve important introductions, some of the world's most renowned leaders and theologians - Andrew Young, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and Mrs. Rosa Parks, among others-share with you their reflections on these speeches and give priceless firsthand testimony on the events that inspired their delivery.

Expressing a deeply felt faith in democracy, the power of loving change, and a self-deprecating humor, A Call to Conscience is Dr. King speaking (in bold) today. It is a unique, unforgettable record of the words that rallied millions, forever changed the face of America, and even today shape our deepest personal hopes and dreams for the future.

Introduction written and read by Reverend Leon H. Sullivan
