The March on Washington, 1963: "We shall overcome some day."

A friend suggests viewing Dr. King's 1963 "I Have A Dream" speech in its entirety if you haven't done so recently. It's about 17:00, just long enough to consider the arc of history and how it has, and hasn't, bent toward justice since King spoke. The speech is all over the internets, of course. Our friend found it on a nonprofit voting-rights group's website, Why Tuesday?, where they remind us of King's emphasis on the importance of "that short walk to the voting booth." Think what King would tell us now.
