Motown's Recording of 'I Have a Dream'
Joe Billingslea was in New York with The Contours during the Detroit Walk to Freedom, but returned to the city a few days later. He recalled hearing the engineers mastering the recording of the "I Have A Dream" speech recorded at the Walk. "We stopped, said 'Who is that Man, listen to that.' You know it was the voice and the way it was characterized," he said.
