Tomorrow, I will post some audio artifacts to commemorate the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., 40 years ago.
Tonight, I present the voice of Mohandas K. Gandhi, whose anti-racist activism and nonviolent tactics inspired Dr. King and others in the civil rights movement.
In 1931, Mahatma Gandhi recorded “My Spiritual Message” in London. It is considered today one of the best surviving audio recordings of his voice.
Click here to hear 5 minutes of that recording on my Vox blog.
