Dr. Benjamin E. Mays Speaks is a documentary of thirty-one speeches delivered by the great educator, civil rights advocate, minister, philosopher, and orator. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., referred to Dr. Mays as his "spiritual and intellectual father," indicating the influence the educator had on the development of his social and religious thought. Dr. Mays inspired and motivated young King while he was a student at Morehouse College during the 1940s through his Tuesday morning chapel speeches to the student body and in informal chats thereafter. In addition to mentoring King, the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Mays had a significant impact on the lives of an immeasurable number of others who made meaningful contributions to American life and culture. Dr. Mays delivered more than a thousand speeches during his remarkable career. He was a powerful, credible, smooth speaker, who captured the audience's full attention in the first few minutes, and held it until the end. This book is the first attempt to craft a representative collection of Dr. Mays's oratory that embraces the pre- and post-civil rights eras, along with clear and logical analyses of many of the key issues of the twentieth century.
