Nearly everyone knows about Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, but museum archivists recently unearthed a powerful speech by the civil-rights leader that history nearly forgot.

The once-lost audio reveals a speech that King delivered to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation in 1962. The New York State Museum rediscovered the speech on reel-to-reel magnetic tape, and uploaded it to YouTube Monday as part of an online exhibition about the event.
