Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. roundup
- Liss has the full video of the I Have A Dream speech, which serves, among other things, as reminder that he was an absolutely amazing orator.
- Cara discusses Dr. King and reproductive justice over at the Curvature (which I’m adding to the blogroll as soon as I finish this post).
- Pam’s got Dr. King speaking against the Vietnam war, and how the 2008 Presidential candidates are trying to connect to King’s legacy even though “it’s pretty clear the King of 1968 is probably more radical a figure than they would want to identify with.”
- Jessica has a collection of Dr. King quotes, with readers adding their favorites in comments.
Feel free to add anything else you come across in comments.
Update: I’d intended to link to “Letter from A Birmingham Jail,” but got distracted. Luckily, Evil Bender’s got my back.
