MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC/CNN) - A couple says audio tapes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were found tucked away in their closet.
The box of audio tapes is now heading to a bank vault.
Until recently, it had been shuffled from closet to closet in Laura and Birdie Crosby's home.
The tapes were passed down by Laura's father, a reporter for a South Carolina Newspaper.
You can hear what the Crosbys says is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. giving a speech during a visit to Charleston.
"Said I came to Charleston to start a riot, been here a week organizing (laughter). As much as I talk about love, how could anybody accuse me of organizing a riot," said Dr. King.
The Crosbys are in the process of preserving the recordings with the help of historians.
