Glad someone picked up on this interesting archival film clip. I nearly added it myself earlier this morning.

Noted. I remember when Dr. King forecasted this event...and the reaction it set off. Thanks, Ben, for reminding me by posting this interesting story/video.

Thank You, Ben for this film clip. I hope we will all give President Obama a chance to get to work and be patient because there is much to be done to undo the last 8 years. It is one crisis after another. I felt that Dr. King would have approved of his Inagural Speech and I think President Obama realizes that there is hard work to be done and he is counting on everyone to do their part. A new day has really dawned for everyone on this planet.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was and is a great force in America and across the world. He glorified God and exemplified God's plan for unconditional love and mutual respect among people across all racial, economic, and class lines. His ministry showed that human beings need to focus more on the ties that bind us than the religious and social differences that divide us. Finally, on November 4, 2008, we showed that we got the message!


Blessings, and thank you for this news, Ben O.
