This weekend, President Obama will dedicate the new memorial on the National Mall honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A documentary of King has recently been unearthed that captures some of his greatness. Dr. King was a truly great American who changed the nation's political and social fabric without ever violating his principles, and he did it with no violence. Happy the man with such a legacy and happy the country that honors that legacy.
