A local bookstore is showing off a rare find on this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. 

Now through the end of this week, 'Raptis Rare Books' on Palm Beach is displaying a speech written by Dr. King delivered to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1966.
The speech includes extensive hand written notes that give insight into Dr. King's thoughts about the civil rights campaign. 

The owner of the book store, Matthew Raptis, says the speech has brought in folks from around the area looking to get a glimpse of history. 

“He taught us to love, he taught us to care for one another,” Raptis says. “We're all equal no matter the color of our skin…or what we believe in. We're all equal, we're all in this world together.”

The speech will be on display at the store from now until January 20.
