This has been a busy week where history is concerned.  Fifty years ago yesterday, MLK gave the world his Dream at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  When I think about that dream, this picture sums it up:  A beautiful Black power couple.  The man is the leader of the free world and the woman is a fashion icon to women of ALL races all over the globe.  The frock she is wearing is by Black designer, Tracy Reese, yet, FLOTUS has worn dresses by designers of all races.  When I think “content of character” - these things offer powerful evidence that we are closing in on MLK’s dream, more or less.  This moment, and all of the little facts to be gleaned from it, are brought to you by those dreamers at the March On Washington!!
