On Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, we’re going to the archives of Chris Fabry Live. You’ll hear why the “I Have A Dream Speech” made such an impression in 1963. And less than three weeks after that speech came a bombing in Birmingham. You’ll hear from someone who was there. You’ll even hear from a guest who refers to Dr. King as Uncle M.L. Don’t miss the conversations on Chris Fabry Live.
