Additional Details

A poster promoting the Gordy Records release of "The Great March To Freedom," a spoken-word record of King's 23 June 1963 speech in Detroit, released "by arrangement with Dr. Martin Luther King and the S.C.L.C." Gordy Records, a subsidiary of Berry Gordy's Motown Records, made use of the instantly recognizable words "I Have a Dream" in this publicity for the newly released record. The famous 28 August March on Washington speech containing those historic words is not included on the record, though. We trace no other examples of this poster.
