Black History Month: MLK and W.E.B DuBois

As Black History month enters its final week, thought I'd post MLK's "I have a dream" speech since I never actually seen or heard the entire thing.

Martin Luther King talking about death threats on his life.

Great Barrington is the birthplace of W.E.B. DuBois and as I write this, I am sitting at a computer in the W.E.B. DuBois library at Umass Amherst. The video is a brief summary of his life and his influence as an important American historical figure.

Watch it!

The youtube stuff's OK, but you gotta get a camera again. Thought you would like this website, if you haven't seen it before: public sharing and analysis of leaked government communications:

The videos are working fine for me from a random computer at the library (so I doubt the videos are cached on this computer) so not sure why they are not working for you? Try loading them in a different browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox)
