I’m old enough to remember hearing Martin Luthor King’s stirring I have a dream speech on television at the March on Washington on August 28, 1963. As his holiday approaches I felt it necessary to share some images of the Civil Right struggle from the Library of Congress archives to remind people of history especially when we have a leading presidential candidate who embraces his own racist viewpoints.
Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages,infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
