COMMENTARY: Live the Dream

Saundra Curry Ardrey

Obama said last week that the legacy of discrimination had left a persistent economic gap between blacks and whites, but that the civil rights movement’s impulse for equality had spread to Hispanics, immigrants, gays and others.

“What’s wonderful to watch is that … each generation seems wiser in terms of wanting to treat people fairly and do the right thing and not discriminate,” he told a Binghamton University audience in Vestal, New York. “That’s a great victory that we should all be very proud of.”

Let us ALL join in Dr. King’s call for racial and economic justice.
