Chattanooga MLK Interview Comes to Light, After More Than 50 Years

Aug 22, 2012

A Chattanooga man recently discovered something in his attic that has caught the attention of the world: a never before heard recording of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Stephon Tull found an old reel to reel tape in his father's attic in Chattanooga. In the recording, Dr. King discusses the effect of the sit-in movement and he addresses some rare topics, like a trip to Africa.  In this segment we hear clips from the recording and an interview with Keya Morgan, the New York dealer now in possession of the tape.
