This Speech Mattered
Barack Obama just became an important person in American history as far as I am concerned. This speech on race in America was more than powerful and inspiring. It was an insightful call to action. It identified the challenges we face as a nation and the ways in which racial politics can interfere with addressing those problems. It courageously recognized legitimate motivations behind racially charged fears, but challenged us to overcome them. This is our Letter from a Birmingham Jail.
