Links to other speeches by Dr. King and the poetry of Hughes are also included as well as a video of a celebration of the two men presented by Rocky Mount, North Carolina’s own Imperial Centre. The dedication ceremony for the grand opening of the History Exhibit in Rocky Mount can also be viewed, and a podcast is available that explains the connections between the poet and the preacher.
