Fortieth anniversary.

Forty years after Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination Barack Obama is on the verge of becoming the sole Democratic candidate for President oif the United States. I have no idea how Reverend King Jr. would react to this, but I am pretty sure that had he lived a major party would have had an African-American presidential candidate sooner. We may not be in the future he envisioned yet, but we are getting there slowly, very slowly. Perhaps the 21s Century is going to bring about a long overdue change in this country. Let's hope.
