Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and The Public Imagination

Friday, January 18, 2013

On August 28, 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. did what he’d done countless times before: he began building a sermon. And in his sermons King relied on improvisation, drawing on sources and references that were limited only by his imagination and memory. It’s a gift — and a tradition — on full display in the "I Have A Dream" speech, but it’s also in conflict with the intellectual property laws that have been strenuously used by his estate since his death. In a segment originally aired in 2011, OTM producer Jamie York speaks with Drew HansenKeith MillerMichael Eric Dyson and Lewis Hyde about King, imagination and the consequences of limiting access to art and ideas.
