I guess I missed the discussion with Douglas Brinkley, the historian, and with with Sister Louise D. Patterson, wife of the Memphis preacher Bishop G.E. Patterson, on the life and legacy of Martin Luther King. But on the way to work this morning I heard a long, substantive, and rather wonderful interview with Jesse Jackson about King—his last moments, his struggle with our government, what he would likely be doing if he was alive, the progress on race and inequality that has been achieved since his death, the distance still to go. Where? On Imus in the Morning, on the 40th anniversary of King’s death and the one-year anniversary of Don Imus’s infamous remark. The human heart is a mysterious and resilient thing.
