It's been 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech." Some parts of the dream have come to fruition, but I think we all agree that more needs to be done.
Im not talking about more social programs or more handouts. I talking about the personal responibility of all African Americans to accept responsibility for condition of our communities.
50 years ago there was a call for change in the actions and mindsets of whites towards blacks. Today African Americans need a change in OUR actions and mindsets towards our own community and what defines it.

Tens of thousands of people flooded the Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall on Saturday, the first stop in a week of events commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s watershed of "I Have A Dream" address and the march on Washington.
Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have a Dream Speech, Excerpt Delivered 28 August 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. "And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!3" Remember this day very clearly as well as the day of his assassination, funeral and events that followed and preceded watching it on the television. Watching his daughter Berniece laying her mothers lap and her mothers face beneath the veil in shock. To me I was that little Berniece that day too! Press Release
This is the 50 year anniversary of the extraodinary "I Have a Dream" speech by Dr. King at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.
Jesse Epps was with Dr. King on that memorable day that went down in history. Mr. Epps was one of Dr. King's closest friends and confidants. He was also with Dr. King on the day that Dr. King was assasinated. Today we have Mr. Epps talking about what he is doing to further Dr. King's dream.
This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on some of the unfinished business of the civil rights movement by questioning the emotional and psychological legacy of this remarkable historical period and how it relates to current self-perceptions of the modern-day Black community. Did our strategic quest for political and legal equality neglect our need for psychological liberation? Did we push so hard to be equal with the majority group that we psychologically undermined our own unique value and beauty as a people?
Joining us to sort this out is former Tuskegee mayor Omar Neal, activist mother and lawyer Enola Aird, and psychologist Dr. Daryl Rowe. Together we will discuss this issue of emotional emancipation and its ongoing connection with our quest for civil rights.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
Martin Luther King's 40 Acres and A Mule, Redeeming The Check... Rare Speech Footage.
"At the very same time that America refused to give the Negro any land, through an act of Congress our government was giving away millions of acres of land in the West and the Midwest, which meant that it was willing to undergird its white peasants from Europe with an economic floor."
