How They Overcame

Thurl Bailey, former Utah Jazz player and one of the more recognizable African Americans in my fair (double-entendre intended) state, shared the story of how an old slave spiritual became the anthem and a rallying cry for the Civil Rights movement. This is a perfect example of the power of song to convey shared meaning and to motivate groups.

Thanks to the Rev. Martin Luther King, not only for what you did for your cause, but for how your cause changed our nation.

And, on a day like today, it's appropriate that I link to Melissa's post--she's my family's liberal conscience--reminding us to love people for who they are.

It always amazes me when people (my family) listen to my liberal yammering. Thanks for the compliment. :-)
