[news] This Week At Old South Haven Presbyterian Church (2).doc

          This Week At Old South Haven Presbyterian Church

On August 28, 1963 Martin Luther King, Jr. deliver his “I Have a Dream” speech at the March on Washington.  Time Magazine in its current issue writes “The speech had established him as the moral leader of the nation.”  I was privileged to be at the mall that day and with the thousands of others was greatly moved by it.  I returned to the Mall for the 25th anniversary of that speech.

Recently a movie was released and is now playing in many Long Island theaters, including Mastic, that views the whole struggle for civil rights for Blacks through the eyes of a White House butler.  It is titled “The Butler”.  I saw it. I was deeply moved by it.  I highly recommend it.
