Even though the official dedication of the new Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene, thousands of people gathered Sunday to see the newest addition to Washington, DC’s National Mall.
Like Dr. King, the memorial projects a bold presence and a sense of dignity that was clearly felt among the visitors. Jordan and I were fortunate to be there yesterday to witness this impact firsthand, on the 48th anniversary of the “I have a dream” speech – delivered just footsteps away in 1963 to a crowd of over 200,000.
The geographical significance of Dr. King’s memorial is a statement in itself. The fact that the statue stands tall between the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials was done to create a visual “line of leadership.”
Messages given throughout Dr. King’s career are engraved on the memorial, reminding us of how deeply inspired he was by his faith. We posted some of our photos of the new memorial on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page, specifically a photo of this quote from Dr. King (quoting Amos 5:24):
We are determined here in Montgomery to work and fight until justice runs “down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
Dr. King’s unforgettable words of unity were vital in bringing the social change our country desperately needed to bring us closer to equality. Today, we were honored to have Dr. Alveda C. King on the Jordan Sekulow Show. She is the daughter of late civil rights activists Rev. A.D. King and Naomi Barber King, growing up “in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” Currently, Dr. King is a Pastoral Associate and Coordinator of African American outreach of Priests for Life.
If you missed the show, I encourage you to listen to it online.
Fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee accomplished one thing: With his testimony, Comey’s case against President Trump collapsed like a house of cards. Not only did Comey’s testimony clear President Trump – admitting under oath that the President was...
Former FBI Director James Comey is preparing to tell his side of the story before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday regarding his encounter with President Trump. His prepared remarks were released today – and make no mistake about it – this is Comey’s opportunity to get back in the...
President Donald Trump has just fired FBI Director James Comey. President Trump’s letter states that Comey is “not able to effectively lead the Bureau.” President Trump's action is not only appropriate, but represents the correct action taken against Comey who has become a renegade FBI Director.
There is a ruthless, coordinated attempt by those on the Left – in Congress, in the mainstream media, and in the bureaucracy – to undermine and undercut President Trump. First it’s a leak. Then a deceptive smear. And finally an all-out assault intended to hinder and even remove from office senior...
