We hear excerpts from a speech Coretta Scott King gave in New York City three weeks after the assassination of her husband, Martin Luther King Jr. He was scheduled to address an anti-Vietnam War rally. Speaking from notes found in his pocket after his death, King delivered his messages to the group. (This story contains audio courtesy of Pacifica Radio Archives.)
