King speech rediscovered by Ohio teacher, student
CLEVELAND (AP) — A recording of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is getting new attention after being found in 2010 by an Ohio high school art teacher and student searching through items the school library was discarding.
The 1967 speech preserved on reel-to-reel tape was given, and found, at Glenville High School in Cleveland. In it, King says "Our power does not lie in Molotov cocktails. ... Our power lies in our ability to say nonviolently that we aren't gonna take it any longer."

The glacier in question creeps over a steep section of road and into an unprotected ravine, threatening to take motorists with it. The deep roadside ditch plummets approximately 100 feet down near the John Froelich farm south of Lake Ashtabula.
