Martin Luther King Jr. - 'I'm Proud to be Maladjusted!'

During a speech given at Western Michigan University on December 18, 1963, four months after his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told a crowd of about 2,000 people that he was "proud to be maladjusted."

"I am still convinced that nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom and justice," King said during the speech. "There is power and real power in this method."
