King Junior's I have a dream speech we at twenty twenty or proud to present the march a documentary directed by Jonah Comfort and narrated by Denzel Washington originally made in twenty thirteen to commemorate the Marches Fiftieth Anniversary. Some of those voices sadly are now gone, but their legacy lives on. I have had to tell my children about the segregates what it means. Seven year old daughter she wanted to go from town. And we found it necessary to explain to That she couldn't go to fun town because she was colored. To attempt to explain a system like unjust and. Segregation.

And Brush shoulders with Birmingham policeman and he pulled out his pistol and pistol whipped the more to the ground. It was a horrible heinous place. The campaign was to be led by the organisation's Ben Thirty four year old leader. The Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Junior. WHO HEARD PEOPLE? who except in dusted oppression and second-class citizenship. in an attempt waiting go the Paul Pompidou. The time all we ripe to do right. Dr King was the voice of Civil Rights from the bus boycott on but by the end of nineteen, sixty, two, he recognized. That the civil rights movement. was. Losing what he called its window and history. The. South was still segregated and he said we need to take more of a risk. We need to go for broke I need to go for broke. I think he felt that. We have to be willing to give our lives to put an end to segregation. If we do. Then segregation will end even if we die. That was the reason he chose. Birmingham. For the victory won some even have to face physical death. We must come to see the now some things.

How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?
"The past fifty, two years teacher and diversity trainer Jane Elliott has been stirring up trouble on the subject of racism. It can still be uncomfortable squirm in your seat stare at your shoes uncomfortable when she subject someone to the very same exercise she I unleashed on third graders more than half a century ago designed to expose racist thinking. Something, her method can get downright mean but again, the subject is racism, it should be troubling. Elliott came to prominence when the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in nineteen, sixty, eight, sheep herself a white woman took her classroom of all white third graders in. Riceville Iowa and decided to teach them what it was like to face discrimination. She separated the kids into two groups those with Brown eyes and those with blue and proceeded to proclaim the. Brown. Is these superior group she allowed the group extra privileges more time recess seats at the front of the room they were told they were cleaner smarter more talented. How children reacted to this newfound pecking order was startling. The Brown eyed group immediately began to wield their dominance. The blue is almost immediately slipped into the role of subordinates. Anger flared disputes popped up. After switching roles a few days later, which gave both sides of the classroom taste of being in the lesser group the exercise ended. Many parents complained after reading about what had happened in Elliott's classroom through student essays printed in the local paper. A month or so later, Johnny Carson invited Elliott to appear on his late night talk show she became a national story. Many praised efforts at her students is but not everybody a two, thousand five storied Sonian magazine reported hundreds, viewers, wrote letters, saying Elliott's work appalled them how dare you try this cruel experiment out on white children? One said black children grow up accustomed to such behavior but white children, there's no way they could possibly understand it. It's cruel to white children and will cause them great psychological damage. Elliott spoke with us for the article that this episode is based on from her home in Iowa. She said, you think that's traumatizing try living that way for a lifetime. Elliott taught for years before she decided to take her anti-racism lesson out of the classroom and Corporate America. She's also led the exercise for the US Department of Education and other governmental groups. She's appeared before numerous church and school assemblies she was on. Oprah Winfrey's TV show several times in June of twenty twenty. She appeared on the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She often faces uncomfortable and sometimes angry reactions but her goal as it has been for the past fifty two years is education. She says, it's the best weapon against racism. But good education about racism and race is hard to find. Elliott said, that's because the educators believe the same thing that they were taught and they were taught the same thing I was, which is that there are three or four different races and you can tell what a man's intelligence is by the color of his skin or the shape of his head. You can't lead people out of ignorance if you're still teaching the Columbus discovered America and we came here to civilize these savages. Will need to teach the three RS of rights respect responsibility if teachers would respect the rights of those students to learn the truth and be held responsible for seeing that they present them with the truth we could kill racism in two generations is not a doubt in my mind that could be done. Elliott at eighty seven years. Old has seen. America, grapple with racism all her life. She's marked major mile posts in the struggle over the past fifty years or so the civil rights movement and the assassination of doctor king in the sixties, the race riots in Miami's Liberty City in nineteen eighty and in Los. Angeles after the Rodney King beating in nineteen ninety, two, the protests in Ferguson. Missouri and twenty fourteen after the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore Maryland in two thousand fifteen after that of Freddie Gray and in Charleston south. Carolina. That same year after a church massacre. There are many others. But the problem she has been relentlessly attacking Elliott says, goes far beyond the occasional race-based. Clara. For people of Color in the United States facing racism is an everyday fight every minute of every day. Elliot said. It's only been going on with me for fifty two years. I know black women who have been doing this for eighty nine years and their mothers did and their grandmothers dead and their great is dead and their daughters and their granddaughters and their great granddaughters are going to have to do. It must be get off our polyunsaturated fatty acids and do something about this. I get paid to talk about it. They aren't even allowed to talk about it. One of the biggest hurdles in educating people about racism in the United States Elliott says is that most everyone knows it exists and knows that it's harmful but few are motivated to change it. She stood in front of. and asked who among the white people in the room would want to switch places with a black person no one ever volunteers. She cautions that recognizing the problem is only the first step but Elliott is nothing if not persistent, she says, she'll continue to educate for the next fifty years. She'll push her mantra of one race the science behind the simple words it's clear. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute your genome, the bodies blueprint that contains all of your DNA is ninety, nine point nine percent the same as every human around you. And she says, she will urge people to get out and vote November no hope of electing leaders who will attack racism as she has had on.

On Wednesday afternoon I was sitting at my desk and heard noise I couldn't identify coming through my open window. My partner born and I went outside to see what was going on. Thousands of protesters marching of Ninth Avenue as far as the I could see wearing masks, carrying signs and chanting. They were heading north, and in a few blocks be passing the apartment complex where fired Rushton once lived. He was a principal architect of the march on Washington for jobs and freedom. In August nine hundred and sixty three, a quarter of a million Americans massed in Washington D. C. at the foot of the Lincoln memorial to demand an end to state sanctioned racism. In this revisiting the archive episode, you'll hear buyers Rushton in his own words. In, addition to coordinating the nineteen sixty three march on Washington, fired was one of the organizers of the very first freedom ride through the American south in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty seven. And was mentor to Dr. Martin Luther, King Junior from the time of the Montgomery bus boycott. Barred Rushton was a proud black gay man who paid a high price for proclaiming who he was long before. It was remotely safe to do so. He put himself in harm's way over and over again subjected to attacks by white supremacists who uses race and sexuality to try to destroy him. But not only resisted triumphed. You're about to hear. An interview fired rust and gave on February fifth nineteen, eighty, six a year and a half before he died. The reporter was young peg Byron who was freelancing for DC based GAY newspaper? The, Washington, Blade. Pay conducted the interview in buyers, office and Lower Park Avenue New, York City just across town from where he lived in Chelsea with his partner Walter Naegle. Walter was also buyers assistant, and you can hear the sound of him in the next room through much of the interview. It's thanks to Walter who recorded the conversation and save it for decades in a box under their bed that we're able to hear Byron speak in this rare interview about the impact of his sexuality on his work in the civil rights movement. So, let's join peg Byron admired rusting desk and listen to history from a man who changed its course. To know mind now, let's play all right. Walters doing some research. On me. Therefore, he tapes Manipur. Anybody else does that check on. Wall. With this shows is that. Stop now this is still going. has there ever been Some projects are involved. We're.

And actually I the person who drew up plans for his southern Christian leadership conference. Given. It was so much pressure on Dr. King's about my game. And particularly I would not be denied.

Creating a Culture of Contribution with Tom Rath
"There's this crazy thing going on right now. The United States is filled with people that deeply want to care about the work that they do every single day and at the same time the United States is simultaneously filled with business owners. Who are desperately looking for people that care about the work that they do every single day. So why exactly? Can't we figure this out? Why can't we bridge this gap from the Ramsey network? This is the entree leadership podcasts. Where we help business leaders grow themselves their teams in their profits. I'm your host Alex Judd. And today we're talking to world renowned researcher and the best selling author of the new book. Life's great question. Tom Rath and in the mountains of data that he has collected on high-performing leaders teams in the workplace. He's found one very specific pattern a pattern. That could help bridge the gap between leaders and their teams. That pattern is an increased focus on contribution. Yeah you know one of the things that I realized pretty quickly as I started to look at the broad challenges that we face out there. Today in terms of the fundamental relationships people have with their work which on average across organizations are nowhere near as good as they could be one of the challenges. Is that There's just a huge misalignment between all of the individual talent. That's out there in the marketplace today. And what the world needs and so you know we've been pretty good over the last hundred. Two Hundred Years. It aligning products and services with what customers need. But we haven't made anywhere. As near as biggest strides in terms of matching individuals are with the demands that are out there in the workforce today. And what I realized as I dug deeper into this as we've done a pretty good job of helping people to understand their own talents there on passions and their own interests. But we really haven't done much with trying to determine what are all unique ways in which we can contribute to others lives in a real meaningful and productive way and you know I was deeply inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Dr Martin Luther King Junior and I something I asked myself. Every single day which was his famous quote about life's most persistent and urging question is. What are you doing for others boy? I think that's just a great way to Orient. Your Day orients your day around contribution and adding to things that will continue to grow in your absence. So that's what helped to focus a lot of this work powerful as you were saying that I was thinking about that John F. Kennedy. Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country. And it's amazing how The Martin Luther King Quote John F. Kennedy quote. There's something that when we hear that we kinda say that's right. That's what I need to be spending my time on and it's related to that topic of contribution so I'd like to know. How do you define that word contribution? Yeah you know it's interesting. I worked through a lot and was the first thing about. How do you help people to connect with a purpose or meaningful work which you hear a lot about it when I really got into the practical application of how do you get? People focused outward instead of inward every day and focused on how they're adding another person's contribution is really about the small bricks that you're adding to a wall over time essentially and it's more of the things that you're doing in the next hour today that might had to someone else's well being might inspire someone a day from now that in my case with my kids might contribute to their development and growth even five ten years down the road on days. When I'm not there helping so I think contribution I would define it as anything you do. That has a positive influence on another human being the continues to grow in your absence and those things usually start small and grow over time continues to grow in your absence. Why that Fraser? Why is that important as part of this definition? Well you know that's important to me from some of my own personal learnings. I talk in the opening of this book about how when I was sixteen years old. I was diagnosed with a real rare condition. I went blind in one eye. Because of it and doctors told me that I would be likely to have cancer. In my kidneys and pancreas and spine over whatever course of a life. I might live and I've battled cancer and all those areas and I bring that up because what it did was even from that young age over the last twenty five years. It got me very focused on. What are all the that I can work on this afternoon? Then we'll continue to grow tomorrow week from now year from now and eventually when I'm gone and what I've learned that experience there is you know it may sound kind of morbid from the outset but when you start to think like that it really does get you focused on more productive efforts during the day and things that you can feel good about tomorrow and many years from now and he gets you focused on what I would call or what I think I David Brooks talked about this about a year ago New York Times Column More Eulogy Values instead of things that go on a resume that are more sterile and tactical so it almost sounds like you're talking about like a mindset or an attitude for leaders but also just for individual team members is this mindset developed like do you have to go through a life altering transformative experience like you did to change your mindset or is it learned or how can we build up this kind of way of looking at the world that contribution is the first thing that we're thinking about. Yeah you know. I think it's like a lot of habits is a great question because it's in my experience in working with people working layers. It's bill with repetitions and it's built one day at a time and if you can step back and say in the next three hours what could you do? Even for fifteen or twenty minutes that would make a meaningful contribution to the growth and development of one other human being whether that's someone who looks to you for leadership whether that's a customer whether that's a family member just taking that daily focus is what helps you to build cumulative days that are better and better as time goes on and you know the other thing. I've learned that's been. I'm through this project in the last year with the book and the website around contribution is the more time you can allocate. That's directed outward toward contribution to others in meaningful efforts during the day. It actually minimizes a lot of the normal stressors that we have with all the things flying at us and all the pressures and demands of the day. And the more time you spend looking inward it actually leads to more insecurities more stress in the like where when you can anchor. Even a few of your efforts outward it takes a lot of that pressure off in the process. That's pretty remarkable. And I love that you talk about it as a habit because that sounds like something I can take action on. That sounds like something I can control. That sounds like something. Every leader can invest their time into. So what is the practical action? People can take daily or maybe even hourly to just start moving their mind towards an attitude and a posture of contribution. Yeah I think that's where it starts. It starts with bringing the humanity back into the work that we do on a daily basis and having conversations about it with our team members because one of the things that I realized when I got into. This is every time we sit down as a team to start a new effort instead of looking at other members of the team joining the group and saying what's there background. What is their resume. Look like what's their bio. What's their job description? We need to sit down and have a more personal conversation about who we are and why we do what we do each day. So that's why as part of this book. I put together a resource for people where they can go through and say. What are the big roles you play in life so for me? That's being a dad and a husband and a researcher and sometimes a writer and what have been the most influential life experiences that have shaped by what I do and so if you sit around and talk about that as a team had helped to bid and then maybe most importantly anytime you bring a group of people together or the whether that's two or three or five or fifteen people if each person can go around and say how do I think I can make a unique contribution of this team because so often we all get excited about something and we're just off and running without even having a discussion to make sure that each of us feels like we can make a meaningful contribution and we're doing that in complementary ways instead of ways that essentially overlap and it takes six months to realize. Oh we were all doing the same thing

A Closer Look at the Black-Jewish Congressional Caucus
"January and February have been full of commemorative moments for both the black and Jewish Communities. The birthday of Martin Luther King Junior the death anniversary of Anne Frank International Holocaust remembrance and Black History Month we sat down individually with three founders of the Black Jewish congressional caucus democratic congresswoman Brenda Lawrence Democratic congresswoman. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin to discuss why the caucus exists the issues. They think it will address and why it's important for black and Jewish leaders to work together. Not Apart I I asked about the original purpose of the Black Jewish congressional caucus how that purpose has evolved since its conception and what the main issues the caucus to address we. I posed the question to chief. Founder Representative Brenda Lawrence when I went to my colleagues. And ask them if they would be interested in forming a black Jewish Caucus. Civically this administration. I have seen an uptick in divisiveness and Rachel tension and also hate crimes been reported as validated being on Increasing and we have such a strong and long history of lack American and the Jewish community coming together in those times when our country lost its way the Jewish community came to the support of the black community during the civil rights movement. We have shared experience between the Holocaust. Slavery of being people oppressed by no other reason except for who we are and We know and we feel uniquely the stereotypes in the tension that are often placed on us as black and Jewish citizens of this country. And we are here in Congress to write laws and policies to ensure quality to make sure that we're forcing the civil rights of this country and we should be having a unique conversation around this and I can tell you I was so impressed with the support and willingness in a bipartisan way to form the caucus so what are the main issues that the caucus hopes to address. Well I want to know that as we look at hate crimes and discrimination as anti Semitic. It's racist xenophobic Often go back to Martin Luther King. Our unity is born of our common struggle for centuries not only to rid ourselves bandage but to make oppression of any people by others impossible so when we plan or what. Our jackets is our is that we will make sure that we are uniquely informed. We are aware of these incidents and policies and situations where we see Racism not being addressed properly or being able or being nurtured and that we can pass policies and enforce loss through our justice system to ensure we're holding true to one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all next. We asked Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz during the civil rights movement jewish-americans lent critical support to the N. Double ACP and fought alongside. Dr Martin Luther King Junior to challenge racial segregation in public accommodations and black leaders have stood with the Jewish community following the tragic shootings. At synagogues in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and POW California Joakim Prinz german-american Rabbi and refugee of Nazi. Germany represented the Jewish community as an organizer during the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. So that history is long and and significant and so the the The Black Jewish caucus is really important for us to be able to to retie those binds. And make sure that we can work on the modern day issues that are of mutual concern to both communities are purposes to assemble leaders to learn from one. Another advocate for joint concerns Regardless of party we believe And we exist because all partners are committed calling out hate and racism and discrimination anti-semitism and xenophobia whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head and you know our alliance in the Black Jewish caucus is really important so that we can work to honor and strengthen and safeguard the bond of our communities that have been developed in the struggle for equality in America. Then we asked representative Lee Zeldin. There is a need to better bridge the gap between the Jewish community and the black community and understanding a long rich history of the the black community fighting for on behalf of with the Jewish Committee and community and vice versa This isn't a new concept for us to be working closely and back in World War. Two was seven sixty first tank battalion. Bed Liberated gun skirt skin and God almost four hundred medals for their heroics their efforts and it was Jewish members who stood side by side with the black community during the civil rights push and some actually ended up giving up their lives in that fight for Justice and equality fast forward to two thousand and nineteen. This was announced in June But we were talking to each other about it for a few months leading up to that. Brenda Lawrence Really did a fantastic job taking a lead initiative. The American Jewish Committee was also influential and helpful with that. 'cause how has it evolved since then? I would say that more and more people have expressed interest in being part of it so it's become a bigger and it's allowed us to build a stronger network and we've seen a divide close But the challenges still exist and we just had a Hanukkah in two thousand nineteen that was marked by violent antisemitic attacks in and around the New York City area and some of the people who were paying attention to it saw that the individuals who are carrying out the attacks weren't neo Nazis. They weren't they weren't white supremacists. They weren't a radical Islamic extremists. And they they weren't Politically motivated it was a different dynamic than what you might have been talking about in June of two thousand nineteen You had some people who are talking about the the black Israel The Hebrew Israelite Movement But then others within that movement rejecting the acts carried out up in Munsey attacking the rabbi's home as well as attacking The the Jewish Kosher Supermarket in New Jersey. So in a way if you ask me how it evolved part of. It's been positive With all of the outreach in all of the new relationships and part of it has been an added challenge added friction as we witnessed what happened in the Hanukkah two thousand nineteen and struggling with figuring out how to as quickly as possible Deal with that next. We asked how the black community can support Jewish concerns and how the Jewish community can more forcefully advocate for African American issues. Here's what Linda Lawrence had to say. Yes the Jewish community has in the past as as you know during the civil rights movement Jewish communities one of our strongest legal and justice advocate on the judicial system but it is lifting the voice of Black America Black Lives Matter Institutional that is. Our biggest challenge institutional racism when it comes to the education when it comes to housing when it comes to the criminal justice lending voice to the black community and pointing out those things that are wrong and the black community. What we can do is make sure that we are calling out the stereotypes against the Jewish community. Then we heard from Debbie Wasserman Schultz. There is really some significant overlap that particularly with the violence and the Anti Semitism and bigotry. That is being hurled at our communities not just with these horrendous murders but with social media attacks and you know protest against our communities and discriminatory actions so we have a lot on our plate. Initially that I think are in my view important for our communities mutually and you know because the Caucasus really in its infancy as we mature and move down the road. Get to know one another issues that you know. We can be across the aisle and across our communities and the caucus focused on trying to prioritize the issues that the individual communities find important and lastly representative Lee Zeldin. Well we always spent a lot of times so far I talking about the way. The Jewish community has been targeted with not just Anti Semitic thoughts but antisemitic actions and violent and some cases of its cost people their lives. So you know the the ways for the the black community to identify what? The top issues are Right now for the Jewish community. We're seeing it. Play out really in the national news and the national debate for the Black Community The there still is racism in our country in many respects and I think that teaching tolerance and and understanding ensuring that policies aren't discriminatory that individuals have the ability to achieve the American dream and shouldn't be held back just because they might be someone of color or they might be practicing a different religion like Judaism. That discrimination racism still exists in our country. We saw it play out not too long ago on. Long Island where I'm from the first. Congressional district of New York is on the east end of Long Island There was a story that was in. Newsday was an investigative report of members of the real estate industry discriminating against people of color who were trying to find housing trying to Purchase a home to achieve the American dream. And unfortunately that's an exception and not the norm. It's rare But the response has been robust with investigations. That have been lost. launched as well as the real estate industry themselves Self policing Each Other To educate but educate each other and to push out of their industry people who are discriminating against Black individuals who are trying to own a home and then she the American dream so I would say as far as identifying some of the biggest needs right now of the black community. I would say that just like it was easy to identify anti-semitism as a top needed needs to get addressed for the Jewish community. I would say. Racism is something that's very prevalent and still needs to be addressed absolutely with regards to the black community next. We asked what issues of mutual concern? The caucus can address. Here's what Brenda Lawrence had to say. I think it's extremely important. That the black and Jewish community allow the history of oppression for either of our people to be forgotten. You know there's some people who like to say the Holocaust didn't happen. There are people who say You know black people so each other to slavery. So what's the big deal? We cannot allow the history that as horrific as it is to be forgotten. And that's something else that I think that we uniquely can do as citizens of this country and as survivor and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Right now we have a really significant challenge around white supremacy and the rise of white supremacists in United States white supremacist increasingly targeted and killed large groups of people in recent years because of their race or religion in the United States in Twenty fifteen we had nine African Americans who were murdered murdered by a gunman whose name I won't mention at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Mother Emmanuel in Charleston South Carolina. Because and this is quoting the murderer. He knew that it would be a place to get a small amount of black people in one area. You had Robert Bowers. Last year yelled antisemitic. Slurs before he opened fire and killed eleven worshippers at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and that was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community. American history you've had attacks on mosques where insecurity has had to be increased after fifty one people were massacred to mosques in New Zealand. So we have a very current urgent challenge with bigotry. Anti-semitism white supremacists who are engaging in in deadly violence and so that's at the security and houses of fighting. Anti Semitism and bigotry is Is really the top of our current list of issue the very tragic areas of mutual concern for for both communities and and I would also add Particularly because most of these crimes perpetrated with guns the Jewish community in the African American community have have really come together around making sure that we can close all the loopholes that allow people who shouldn't have a gun under federal law here in the US be able to get them Now that issue is unfortunately not bipartisan. I was just getting ready to say. That's gotta be bipartisan. doesn't mean that That the hawks On Black Jewish relations can't take it on

"This day. January twenty fifth nineteen sixty one president John F Kennedy held the first presidential news conference to be carried live on radio and television. And that was quite an event, you don't we don't see that anymore. But that was the first time it was done. I know that Eisenhower had done a couple of news conference that were recorded on audio and video on film of whatnot. But to Kennedy doesn't live man had a wealth of confidence in his ability to take on any question. About anything and turn it. I mean, he had such a quick wit that if the reporters really nailed him seven he could he could just pick a joke out of it. And then get past. He was very very good, obviously with then when he was campaigning for Senator Ted if you've ever seen the documentaries about it. They got into television, heavy him and Bobby Kennedy. They really use television and got him elected their ease in front of the camera was changed very very photogenic. And there you go. So that was nineteen sixty one. The officials in one of the nation's largest cities without a public memorial to Martin Luther King junior have voted to rename a ten mile stretch of roadway after the slain civil rights leader the city council in Kansas City, Missouri voted eight to four yesterday to rename the CEO in the city's predominantly black east side as Dr Martin Luther King junior boulevard. Kansas City star reports the vote came after a months-long long debate over which Kansas City landmark should honor king. The CEO also. I'm trying to think of this is it run east west north south anyway at the well, actually the ballpark. The old ballpark was Brooklyn in the so it's one of those streets that goes right down through the middle of Kansas City. A lot of history in Kansas. Lot of jazz history and so forth.

That's probably not going to happen. All right. Six thirteen now. Stephen Ted here on again on Friday morning until we get something big going on today at McConnell air force base. As we welcome. In those tankers coming in. We've been waiting for so long. It's the KC Forty-six Pegasus. And how are we going to have it here? Forty seven forty eight. A number of them. They're going to have a ceremony at about three o'clock this afternoon at McConnell air force base. And they're going to be a lot of welcoming band playing and speeches may speechifying and stuff like that. But it's going to be quite a day. We've been waiting for this a long time it's been postponed several times there was controversy over the tanker. John McCain getting involved someplace along there with Boeing or something, and he he had some problems with the way Boeing did it, and yeah was he held it up for why issues with the bidding process, and whether or not it was corrupted. Yeah. They started this. The air force started this in two thousand one eighteen years later, it's finally happening. I didn't realize that the new aircraft will replace the KC the one thirty five we've been so familiar with around here which built between nineteen fifty five and nineteen sixty five I delivered. It says in this copy of got here I delivered in nineteen fifty seven. Dwight D Eisenhower administration. It's on the with what the old seven seven Boeing platform. I think and it is really not. I think I've just looked inside of one. There's one of those. No, there's nothing in there except fuel in a big tank. I mean, you don't wanna ride on it very long. I guess flying. This thing was was a real treat because they played out here at McConnell air force base. Lot of people learned to fly those things and we've had a couple of crashes around here over the years, I can think of at least two and one of them very seriously the old one thirty five crashed up in the northeast part of Wichita and killed a number of people in their homes on a Saturday morning. So the new tankers pretty slick and look for them are going to be flying around here flying in the sky. We'll be starting to see them flying around have a lot of pilots coming in with training and their families will be with them. And they'll they'll be we need to welcome folks to Wichita because Tallahassee. I just wonder if the no studies ever been done to could be done. But I wonder how many people came to McConnell to serve in the air force over the past fifty sixty seventy years, and it came from other parts of the world and decided, you know, I'm just gonna stay in this town. I know I can tell you the number of in derby, derby has been a huge place for people to retire from McConnell air force base. And as a beautiful little town Derby's Casey one thirty fives.

"I did not know Martin Dr Martin Luther King junior because he lived before me. And I am a child and do, however know his family, I know his children and their children, and though I know them a little bit, and they only know me equally. So they've asked me to speak here today on the holiday named after their father grandfather. And for that. I'm most thankful and humbled. The king family have a sort of calmness and strength about them. At least is something that I've noticed in the few times that I've been with them personally. I have to calmness that I've never forgotten. And I think about on a daily basis it's brought back up within my my soul. When I think of the speech, Mr. king gave that became the I have a dream speech. I think about that speech a lot because in my English class in eleventh grade, we had to annotate it when I think of that experience of annotating, I don't remember feeling bored. Like when I had to annotate Ralph WALDO Emerson's pieces, I feel strong and emotional and passionate and a little embarrassed. Definitely analyzed way too deeply, I remember, my friend Heather and I not together. And I remember how I explain things to her. And she explained things to me, and how we shook free from these five pages of black and white words, a tapestry of adjectives and imagery, so strong. You could feel the crushing weight of segregation through the words themselves. He had a way with words. He really did. He explained the problems that black people faced and still face in a way that made it clear to everyone involved that there is only one solution. That can correct all of this. I try to be like him in that way. And try to think when using words the way his word and the impact they had millions of people all around this country look up to this, man. Even though the majority did not use to the peace warriors of northbound prep and the members of the youth group. Brave are to school centered organizations in Chicago that take the words of Mr. king to heart. They follow the principles of the six principles of nonviolence. And act on them in every day. Some representatives of the club came to my house after the shooting Marjory stoneman Douglas high school, and they taught all the members of March furlough lives. How to sustain the movement we were creating on love not anger, which is all we were feeling and how to make sure that we addressed all areas of gun violence in our fight against it. Because we're not just fighting against school shootings were fighting against gun violence everywhere because injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere. They taught us the six principles and gave us dog tags with principals on them whenever we recited them from memory. And I still can and it was a beautiful experience. I felt heavy with knowledge and emotions that I couldn't speak. And this is the way that I feel when I think about the king family the words nobility wisdom. Honesty, and strength. Come to mind when their names are spoken, and I'm forever thankful for the impact their family has had on this country because without them. I don't need to say how much worse this nation would be the words of Dr king's save lives. And so did his actions. He brought about a future where nonviolent protesting is utilized at a grand scale and even looked forward to as by many as a way of public in civil engagement with our government with his words and actions as guidelines to us all in things smallest holding the door for someone who can't for themselves or attacking the forces of evil out their source and not the persons of evil. Dr Martin Luther King junior prepared all future generations with the strength to do. What's right? And I just wanted to say, I'm very very grateful that Yulon dick king. The youngest was able to join us on the March for life and Jacqueline Koren who I work with on a daily basis just like walked over to her and held her hand and said, I have a guest for everybody and everybody lost their mind when they saw that it was her, and she started little black girl and a little white girl holding hands in front of millions of people around the country and around the world started chanting together about how we're going to make.
