They had a great documentary on CNN today about the 50th anniversary of MLK's "I have a dream" speech. It was great footage, so we all could see the huge crowds & the beauty of the Capitol. Yes, it is hard to believe that the rights which were being established in those days, have subtly been taken away & undermined by the GOP, in their increasing reach for power, & desire to destroy We the People. One of the best moments shown in that documentary was Barack Obama signing an autograph, shortly after becoming the first "black" President of the United States. He wrote, "Because of You, John --- (signed) Barack Obama." (In essence thanking all the people who worked for Negro equality back in 1963, including Prez Kennedy). That autograph was given to John Lewis, one of the 6 most prominent leaders in the Equal Rights movement. (HR from Georgia's 5th district today).
