In Honor: Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’ve Been to the Mountaintop (MLK 1968):

“All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’  If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there.  But somewhere I read of the Freedom of Assembly.  Somewhere I read of the Freedom of Speech.  Somewhere I read of the Freedom of the Press.  Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the Right to Protest – for Right.”
