BLSA Partners with Alabama Law to Produce Adapted Reading of MLK Speech

January 14, 2024

The Black Law Student Association (BLSA) at The University of Alabama partnered with Alabama Law to produce an adapted reading of “A Realistic Look at Race Relations,” a speech given by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On May 17th, 1956, on the second anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education, and as the Montgomery Bus Boycott continued, Dr. King delivered this address at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund’s annual dinner. Watch the video above to hear excerpts from Dr. King’s speech read by current BLSA members at Alabama Law.
