Selling the Dream

Sotheby’s to auction MLK Collection

On June 30, Sotheby’s will auction the Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection, which includes nearly 7,000 handwritten items, including a draft of the notorious “I Have a Dream” speech. The money from the auction is slated to go to the King estate, which is struggling financially.

The King estate hopes that the collection will be sold to an institution, rather than an individual; and I hope that also. There’s a wealth of knowledge within that collection that should be properly preserved and available to the public. I suppose we’ll see what happens on June 30.

God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL. Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.
