Presidential Academy

This is related to Joe’s post below. Not only do I (and we) teach King in all the ways you would expect, but we also use his Dream speech (with the Declaration and the Gettysburg Address) as the core document around which our Presidential Academy revolves.

Given the discussion on the below post on Busch’s piece, it seems that it is hardly a slam dunk for King. Busch was almost harder on him than Perlstein. There are good things to celebrate, and good reasons to rewrite or ignore the weak points. However, the holiday and the man will never be as safe as President’s day, which it has eclipsed, and Washington and Lincoln.

I just watched the "I Have a Dream" speech again from start to finish. It will last as long as any other speech in American history. The rest is just biographical detail.
