I especially want young adults to listen and download today’s show. It will help connect the words in the history books with one woman who experienced it first hand.  Everyone knows about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. An impressive quarter of a million people heard his “I Have A Dream” speech live on the Washington Mall on that hot summer day in August 1963. Many more watched with anticipation on television.   The rest have read about it in the history books.


A very young Simma Lieberman was one of the lucky ones who heard the speech live among the crowds on the Washington Mall that fateful day in 63.’ And it proved to be life changing for her and countless others who dreamed of freedom and justice for all Americans.


Simma is my special guest today, and she will help paint the picture of why the King Dream matters as much today as it did almost 50 years ago.
