"You don't have anything if you don't have hope"
In the Spring of 1987, John Leonard Harris obtained one of two original copies of a tape featuring a speech given by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on May 23, 1962. The original reel-to-reel recording had been in a box in the basement of the owner for 25 years. No one had heard the recording since the night that it was recorded.
What Mr. Harris heard on that tape changed his life for forever as he was propelled directly into the heart of the civil right movement.
