Martin Luther King Jr. “I've Been to the Mountaintop” - April 3, 1968 - Final Famous Speech

Happy MLK day everybody.

On this day we celebrate a birthday instead of a deathday. I would like to celebrate his resurrection day.

Brother Cornel West has written a series of important books. But only one does Brother Cornel declare “the most important in my corpus” and that is The Radical King. It came out in paperback last year.

Professor West rejected what he called the “santaclausification”of King and surfaced what he considered his buried sacred texts. As a writer, I thought to myself, “Now why would someone be proudest of a book they didn’t write?”

And it hit me like lightning when I examined the word “corpus”, latin for “body”, generally related to “body of work” in this context. But I believe I know what Brother Cornel meant. He meant it literally.

As a committed Christian, he was daring to take a godlike position of resurrector, or, if the good word spreads to the masses, we can all reach for that position together.

Among the many strengths and strains in streaming audio, lives the fact that practically every spoken word record is available. King’s final speech “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” should be experienced in audio. You can hear the voice of someone who chose martyrdom over fear. It is a miracle the recording exists.

Here’s one version of the recording:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKWCxKq0i1k&feature=emb_title

King’s friends told him to cancel the speech to save his life. He said, “I’d rather be dead than afraid.” He was assassinated the next day.

My son asked me, “Daddy, why do people get assassinated?” I said, “Because it works. Their ideas die with them. It takes decades and decades sometimes for their ideas to return.”

Some protest signs say, “You can’t stop an idea whose time has come.” It’s not true. There are so many ways to stop ideas. Even making them seem new is a fascist achievement.

Thank you Brother Cornel for helping to resurrect the radical Dr. King.

Music streaming services mishandle our data—and our culture is paying for it

Because music streaming companies generally do not have an established presence within the communities that produce music subgenres, the people who create platforms' algorithms and define categories fail to see their gaps in knowledge.
