Among the many celebrators, was the streaming platform, Tidal. Seems like the perfect timing with everything going on in the world. Today Tidal launched a playlist highlighting social injustice, change, and peace. The playlist features historical recordings, including the civil rights leader’s ‘I have a Dream‘ speech, as well as his comments protesting racism and the Vietnam War. Another popular speech that was added was his 1961 Lincoln University speech and his latest speech in 1968.
