This is one of my absolute favorite of King's speeches: his final sermon before he was assassinated. I can't listen to this without shedding tears.
TEXT: http://thewordsofmyheroes.blogspot.co...

Synopsis:
King's "Drum Major Instinct" sermon, given on 4 February 1968, was an adaptation of the 1952 homily ''Drum-Major Instincts'' by J. Wallace Hamilton. King encouraged his congregation to seek greatness, but to do so through service and love. King concluded the sermon by imagining his own funeral, downplaying his famous achievements and emphasizing his heart to do right.
