On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech” is a gift. And no matter how many times I hear his speech over the radio or on the television, I’m moved and inspired. It never gets old.

But, it’s always nice to have a bit of creative inspiration infuse a classic speech. And this video from SALT retelling the concluding four minutes of Dr. King’s speech does just that. You hear young and old, black and white, male and female recite Dr. King’s moving words in English and Spanish. It’ll inspire you too.

I encourage you to share it with your closest friends and newest colleagues. And, I’ll echo a question put to us by Elizabeth Myer Boulton, the creative director behind the film:

How far have we come on the journey to social justice and what must be done to achieve the dream King so eloquently articulated in 1963?
