Syracuse University continues to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On Wednesday, a plaque honoring Dr. King was unveiled on the site where he spoke on campus in 1965.

Recently, an audio recording of King’s 1965 SU speech was located in the University Archives. To hear the full audio, go to mlk.syr.edu.
