MLK Day Special: The Promised Land Speech

January 19th, 2009 · 1 Comment

If you haven’t seen this clip or haven’t seen in it a while, watch it, paying attention when he says “I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.
