Top Ten Civil Rights Anthems for Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr loved South Florida, and visited the region many times throughout his career. He was a contemporary of some of Miami's most upstanding citizens, like Father Theodore Gibson of Overtown, as well as some of our most venerable party starters, like WMBM disc jockey Milton "Butterball" Smith. He even wrote an early version of the famous "I Have A Dream Speech" at the Hampton House Hotel and Villas in Miami's historic Brownsville neighborhood. Today we celebrate the man, the myth, and the legend with the top ten civil rights anthems, commemorating the legacy of the struggle, and to remember that it continues to this day.
