MLK’s “Stride Toward Freedom” (A Free Lecture)

For many life­long learn­ers, The Teach­ing Com­pa­ny is a bless­ing. Since 1990, the com­pa­ny has record­ed uni­ver­si­ty cours­es taught by lead­ing pro­fes­sors and made them avail­able to con­sumers. The cours­es, which tend to be bread-and-but­ter in a good way, range in price depend­ing on the media for­mat you choose. If you buy cours­es on sale (they always run sales), and if you buy the cheap­er MP3 ver­sions (as opposed to the more expen­sive DVDs and audio CDs), you can get a lot of val­ue for your mon­ey. For exam­ple, 24 excel­lent lec­tures on Ancient Greece will run you $34.95, which is not too shab­by.

Now how does all of this tie into what we do here at Open Cul­ture? Here’s how: The Teach­ing Com­pa­ny has post­ed a free 45-minute lec­ture on Mar­tin Luther King, “Stride Toward Free­dom,” which is part of a larg­er course called “Free­dom: Phi­los­o­phy of Lib­er­a­tion.” You can access the lec­ture in dif­fer­ent audio for­mats here, and you’ll get a sense of what The Teach­ing Com­pa­ny is all about.

Caveat: The free offer­ing was sup­posed to have expired on Feb­ru­ary 28. So it may go away soon.
