Fifty years ago this afternoon my father and I turned on our 21" Motorola Console and listened to MLK, Jr. live from Washington, DC. It was absolutely stunning.
Fifty years later it is unfortunate that few have heard the entire
speech, only having heard a few familiar snippets from its brilliant peroration.
(It may surprise that the "whole thing" is only 15 minutes or so; like any good Protestant Minister, MLK, Jr. knew how to pack a lot into a 15 - 20 minutes
