Martin Luther King, Jr. influenced my political thinking more than any other individual. I was fortunate to have worked under him on Vietnam Summer and to have been present on the Washington Mall fifty-five years ago today on August 28, 1963. It’s hard to believe that we are once again fighting the battle to secure the voting rights won as a result of his Dream, and to restore them, where racist Republicans are outlawing the right to vote. Will his dream survive?
Never before has there been such a threat that his dream will be destroyed by the Republican Reich! Will it survive? That depends on YOU!
