As America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Tidal has created a playlist compiled of King's "most iconic speeches."

The streaming platform today launched the playlist, which pulls from various albums featuring historical recordings, includes the civil rights leader's "I Have a Dream" speech as well as his comments protesting racism and the Vietnam War, as well as his 1961 Lincoln University speech and his last speech from 1968.

There are 30 total recordings, in addition to a special "Music from the Mountaintop" playlist featuring music inspired by King or reflective of his message from the likes of Jay-Z, Bob Dylan, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill and Prince.

On this MLK Day, people all over the country are honoring the civil rights icon with special events, acts of kindness, donations to social justice causes and other means to commemorate the day and honor King's legacy. Donald Trump, who last week allegedly blasted Africa as "shithole" countries, is spending the day golfing with no other public events on his schedule.

For those who haven't given Tidal a try or are simply looking for inspiration on this special day, these playlists seem like a great place to start.
