(1929-1968) Clergyman and civil rights leader who advocated nonviolent but active and massive confrontation in order to obtain rights for blacks. A scarce S.P. 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" printed newspaper or magazine image of King delivering his historic "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963. Signed in blue ballpoint towards the bottom: "Best Wishes Martin L. King Jr." This is the first time we have ever seen a signed image by King from the 1963 March on Washington. Signed over light and dark portions of the image which affects contrast, yet signature is still quite legible and visible, else fine condition.
