THOUGHTS ON NOVEMBER 22, 2013 ABOUT PRESIDENT KENNEDY

            It would be truly sad if the controversy over President Kennedy’s assassination obscures and dilutes our recollection of the man and what he meant to this country. It is impossible to listen to his great speeches – his inaugural address, his 1963 speeches on peace and civil rights – without […]

CELEBRATING THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MARCH ON WASHINGTON AND THE “I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH”

No Comment

 

It was not until after President Kennedy’s assassination in November 1963 and the struggle for civil rights legislation in 1964 and 1965 that I began to appreciate the significance of the 1963 March.
