Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $3,845.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Magnificent program for the 1965 Pacem In Terris Peace and Freedom Award ceremony in Davenport, Iowa, on April 28, 1965, 5.25 x 8.5, signed prominently on the front cover in crisp black ballpoint by Martin Luther King, Jr. Handsomely double-matted and framed with a plaque and photo of King receiving the award to an overall size of 17 x 29.5. In very fine condition. King was one of four individuals honored with the Pacem in Terris (Peace and Freedom) award at an event organized by the Davenport Catholic Interracial Council at the local Masonic Temple. After accepting the award, King delivered a resounding speech to the crowd of nearly 800 attendees, calling for the end of segregation, social action, and civil rights legislation. His words from that night, in part: 'To make justice a reality, we must develop massive action programs. With a strong action program—picketing when necessary, demonstrating when necessary, marching when necessary—all undergirded with the philosophy of non-violence we can bring the American dream into full reality.'
