Freedom's Ring

Freedom’s Ring (freedoms-ring.org) is Martin Luther King, Jr.’S “I Have A Dream” speech, animated. The interactive website allows you to compare the written and spoken speech, explore multimedia images, listen to stories  told by movement activists, and uncover historical context within the context of the March on Washington for Jobs And Freedom. The project was created for the 50th anniversary of the speech. It is best viewed on a computer.

Freedom's Ring is a project of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Research And Education Institute at Stanford University in collaboration with Beacon Press's Legacy series.
