Change

By The Reverend Published: January 19, 2009

In the 1968 presidential race, Alabama Governor George Wallace ran his independent campaign appealing specifically to those who hated Martin Luther King Jr. and civil-rights leaders like him. Wallace, unbelievably, carried five southern states and won 10 million popular votes in 1968. That happened only forty years ago.

Today, America honors the righteous life-work of MLK. Tomorrow America inaugurates it's first black president, Barack Obama.

Yes. America. Can.

In honor of both.....if you didn't see HBO's star studded inauguration special yesterday....the following song by Bettye Lavette and Jon Bon Jovi was so moving it even brought a tear or two to The Reverend's eye.....

Obama's great DNC acceptance speech from August, 2008....
