WOW | Unheard Recording of Martin Luther King Jr Found

Stephon Tull was cleaning his fathers attic when he found a tape that said “Dr. King interview, Dec 21 1960”.

When he played it on his friends reel-to-reel player, he heard his father interviewing Martin Luther King Jr:

recording of his father interviewing Martin Luther King Jr. for a book project that never came to fruition. In clear audio, King discusses the importance of the civil rights movement, his definition of nonviolence and how a recent trip of his to Africa informed his views. Tull said the recording had been in the attic for years, and he wasn’t sure who other than his father may have heard it

He plans on selling it to a NY broker and collector. Something MLK said in this audio about violence and practice of nonviolence:

“I would … say that it is a method which seeks to secure a moral end through moral means,” he said. “And it grows out of the whole concept of love, because if one is truly nonviolent that person has a loving spirit, he refuses to inflict injury upon the opponent because he loves the opponent.”
