Being a Negro in America means trying to smile when you want to cry. It means trying to hold on to physical life amid psychological death. It means the pain of watching your children grow up with clouds of inferiority in their mental skies. It means having their legs off, and then being condemned for being a cripple."

            ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1967)

As we prepare for the unveiling of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., World Footprints revisits the path of the civil rights movement.  Today we welcome special guests Charles E. Cobb, Jr., Professor Scott Hartblay and Attorney Christine Bischoff as they share their independent journeys along the path of the civil rights movement.

In his book On The Road To Freedom, Charles Cobb offers a guided tour of the civil rights trail and a glimpse into the marches, struggles, triumphs, sites and profiles of the individuals whose shoulders we now stand on.  Christine and Scott traveled the path of the civil rights movement on independent trails and we will revisit history through their stories and experiences.
