Hope you saw our wonderful interview with local bookstore owner Deborah Dawkins and our conversation about the life of Dr. King on our 4:00 show today. Deborah saw Dr. King in Cleveland when she was 10 years old, and can "bookend" and connect those two events in her life.. what a day it'll be tomorrow.
I asked her about what talk show host Tavis Smiley said Sunday.. that Barack Obama's inauguration does not even begin to fulfill King's dream.. she agreed.. Tuesday's inauguration is just the first down payment on the promise of the dream. So are we there yet as a country.. or is what'll happen at noon in Washington barely the starting point of what Dr. King hoped we could be as a nation?
More on this tomorrow.. RH
