MLK

Please remember to recognize one of our country's greatest and most courageous Citizens, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. His ability to catalyze social change through non-violent means remains one of the most inspiring examples of human achievement.

Thanks for this post David-- an important reminder that MLK didn't only speak out against racism-- he saw it as one of three great evils in the world, the other two being militarism and economic exploitation.

They only teach the "I have a dream speech" in schools, but clearly King had a much more radical message.

The great Riverside Church speech that the video begins with can be heard in full at:
