Gamma Mu Archons, 

An amazing discovery story here about the Unknown Recording of Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s speech at Arizona State University and his only known visit to Arizona in June of 1964.  A great special thanks to our late Gamma Mu Founder, Archon Dr Lincoln Ragsdale, who had the foresight to tape this only known recorded ASU/Arizona MLK ASU speech as it was given on June 3, 1964 in the old ASU Goodwin Stadium (where now stands the ASU Carey School of Business Complex).  Ironically, Dr King made this speech in Tempe, AZ at ASU just a month before the signing of the historic Civil Right Act of 1964 in Washington, DC, on July 2, 1964 as Dr King stood behind President Lyndon Johnson’s desk watching him sign the Act into law at the White House ceremonies.
