A Day for Pilgrim Shadows

This guy misspells Poe’s middle name, but I like the narration and the low-tech animation.

King’s last speech.

    It’s amazing how some simple background music can up the voltage on a poem.

    Of the few I’ve heard, King’s last speech has always been my favorite. Then a year or two ago I learned he’d been sick and didn’t want to speak, and he didn’t have anything prepared. Wow.

      I found a couple versions with much more elaborate sound environments, but they stole the poem’s thunder. This one adds to it, somehow.

      I didn’t know MLK was speaking off the cuff. Glad someone talked him into talking…
