Black History

In celebration of Black history month and awesome public speaking, take a listen to one of the most well-written and well-delivered speeches in history, and a personal favorite. Really, listen to the whole thing, it will make you want to cry.

Naive as it is, I hadn't witnessed too many blatant acts of racism (systematic ones aside) until I moved to Seattle.

A friend overheard this on the bus a few months ago:
Crazy man to bus driver: You know, that Barack guy speaks pretty well for a black man.

Oh my God. Oh. My. God.

Sorry. The bus quote brought the beauty of that speech down a bit, didn't it? I apologize. And I agree with you about this speech. Unbelievable. Perfect. Thanks for posting it.
