“Sometimes people witness history and don’t even realize it. That’s what happened in Dublin, GA on April 17, 1944, when a
15-year-old named Martin Luther King Jr. stepped to the lectern at First African Baptist Church. It was a statewide public speaking contest organized by the Elks Lodge. It was King’s first public speech and, of course, he won it. Little did anyone know at the time they were watching someone who would go on to change the world.”
Thank you The Telegraph in Macon for a great story/video.
