I Have a Dream

Today is the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech in the extraordinary march on Washington.  Although not directly related to the work of this blog, his speech does resonate with the prophetic calls for justice found in the Bible that Aldred and his community read, in particularly the psalms that they knew by heart.

If you have not heard or read it lately, today is a good day to hear King’s words.  The print version is available from the National Archives.  Many YouTube versions are available.
