‘I have a dream’ speech on Radio 4

martin-luther-king-jrThis Wednesday the BBC will be marking the 50th Anniversary of  the March on Washington and Martin Luther King’s  ‘I have a dream’ speech’ with a special programme at 9am on Radio 4.

The entire speech will be read by 19 well-known human rights activists, including Maya Angelou, Doreen Lawrence, Mary Robinson, Malala Yousafzai and the Dalai Lama. You can see the full list of readers here.

The programme will be repeated at 2.30pm on BBC World Service, or you can, of course, catch up on i-Player.

It would be good to hear from Lib Dem Voice readers with their take on the state of human rights today.
