Seeking Freedom 1963 ~ American Contradictions

Today on MLK Day, perhaps reflect on this sliver of the history of Freedom in America from just over a half-century ago, when Dr King was in Birmingham, Alabama... Thanks to MissC for spotting this PBS clip. Police dogs, firehoses, bullying, oppression, the heavy hand of the State -- unbelievable -- except that it's still happening now in China, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and in other oppressed parts of our Planet.
P.S. And here's the I Have A Dream speech... Thanks to Brad Feld for posting it.
