First in Future: NC State Professor Jason Miller (Episode 1 on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)

Summary: In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Institute for Emerging Issues wanted to present the fascinating conversation we had with this week’s First in Future guest, Dr. Jason Miller of NC State’s Department of English. He has discovered a connection between Dr. King and North Carolina in two different speeches in 1962 and 1966. In 1962, Dr. King visited Rocky Mount, and you will hear a part of that speech that contained language from his famous “I have a dream” speech. We will hear Dr. Miller’s insight based on his research into these moments of NC history.
