Happy Birthday, Martin.....
One of the greatest speeches, from one of the greatest orators that was one of the greatest and bravest Americans ever, as well. May we one day be worthy.

I Have A Dream speech--17 minutes

2 videos, each about 6 minutes. The first is President Obama speaking with Senator John Lewis on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's assassination.
and
Scan down for a video of Robert Kennedy announcing to an all black crowd that MLK was dead. This was in Indianapolis while Kennedy was campaigning for President, as John Lewis referenced in the first video.
Maybe could have been so different/could be so different.
