In Obama, LBJ's office, but MLK's legacy
On the anniversary of the March on Washington, President Barack Obama delivered a speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, on the same spot where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” fifty years ago. The President is evidence of the transformative outcome of the original March, but is also the embodiment of American political power. TheGrio.com’s Joy Reid, USA Today’s Raul Reyes, Michael Skolnik from GlobalGrind.com and MSNBC.com’s Adam Serwer join Melissa Harris-Perry to discuss.
