I’ve been reading some of Martin Luther King’s words this afternoon. Their universal truth and beauty surely stand the test of time. We have progressed a long way since the 1960s and the famous ‘I Have A Dream‘ speech, but there is still a long way to go.
I cannot think of either Dr King or, indeed, his firebrand contemporary Malcolm X without my heart aching a little.
Where are our leaders of equal courage now? If I could, I’d rewrite this UB40 song to reflect that frustration.
