From AudioFile:

This is a reproduction of King's 1967 Massey Lectures, an annual series presented by the CBC. The first four lectures seem to be read by King in a recording studio. His delivery is slow, and his style is ponderous; these four lectures do not present the King that most of us are familiar with. However, these lectures presents his critique of U.S. politics and are historically significant for his discussion of his opposition to the Vietnam War. The fifth lecture is a 1967 Christmas Eve sermon, which presents King at his rhetorical best, preaching a powerful sermon about peace. This audiobook is good, but not as good as A KNOCK AT MIDNIGHT, a collection of King's sermons on audiocassette. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From Library Journal:

In 1967, King was selected to present five Massey lectures on Canadian Radio; four were taped in the studio, and the fifth was his Christmas Eve sermon, which could be known as the "I Still Have a Dream" speech. These lectures were created to allow distinguished authorities in fields of general interest and importance to show the results of original study or research. The Canadian Broadcasting Company provides these speeches in their entirety, giving listeners a chance to hear King address the riots in the black community and their causes; the need to work with the young and the impact that the changing times had on them; continued support for nonviolent protest; and the war in Vietnam. Also included are follow-up commentaries for two of the lectures given by noted Canadian scholars. An essential purchase for public, school, and academic libraries.
