Obama’s Speech from Selma Alabama

President Obama's Selma Speech

Obama’s speech in Selma will be part of what defines him and his presidency. It is worth reading based on its own merits of eloquence and what will be its place in American history. One would wish that President Obama would project American values this well on the international stage. How much moral perfection does one need to engage in a battle of ideas and lead against genocide, ethnic cleansing, inhumanity, tyranny and terrorism without equivocation. Martin Luther King also stated that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
