|The lost speech found by Pacifica Archives|
On December 7, 1964, days before he received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway, Dr. King gave a major address in London on segregation, the fight for civil rights, and his support for South Africa's Nelson Mandela and the anti-apartheid struggle.
The speech was recorded by Saul Bernstein, who was working as the European correspondent for Pacifica Radio. Bernstein’s recording was recently discovered by Brian DeShazor, director of the Pacifica Radio Archives.

|SPECIAL: MLK Jr. in his own word|
While Dr. King is primarily remembered as a civil rights leader, he also championed the cause of the poor, organizing the Poor People’s Campaign to address issues of economic justice. Dr. King was also a fierce critic of U.S. foreign policy and the Vietnam War.
