Jesse Jackson on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rev. Jackson spoke about Dr. King and how the historic “I have a
dream” speech has been too oftem reduced to that quote.

But, said Jackson, “His speech was about broken promises.” About how
Lincoln promised emancipation. About how Congress promised civil
rights through the 14th Amendment. About how Blacks and other people
of color still don’t have the federal right to vote, but that voting
rights is a states rights issue. (See Congressman Jackson’s article
