Martin Luther King Jr. at SMU in 1966
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke to a standing-room-only crowd in SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium March 17, 1966. A recording of that speech was given to the University in 2008 by Gene Halaburt of Dallas.

SMU celebrates Dream Week 2013 through Friday, Jan. 25. And each year since 2008, the University shares online the speech Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made to a standing-room-only crowd in SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium Mar. 17, 1966. The recording was given to the University by Gene Halaburt of Dallas, who attended the speech and taped it with a hand-held recorder. (There is a brief gap in the recording at about 40 minutes, possibly caused when the cassette was turned over.)
