but by the content of their character. "
Thirty two years later at the Florida Atlantic University School of Teacher Education,
Professor Arthur Anderson presented the documentary, "King: A Filmed Record... Montgomery to Memphis."
It was the first time I had seen the completed "I Have a Dream" speech.
I was caught by visual of a black mother with a baby in her arms.
I was six months and three days old when Dr. King spoke and I have often wondered what became of that baby.
