Soledad O’Brien speaks with Dallas South

OK, I don't live in Dallas, or Memphis, or for that matter Boston (well anymore). At the time Martin Luther King was shot I lived in Boston. I attended the James Brown concert at the Boston Garden. James Brown and the JB's stopped the rioting that evening in Boston. It was one of the most painful days in American History. It was similar to one day in Dallas, when the world seemed to stand still. I'm reminded Dallas, Memphis and Boston , like Washington, DC and other cities across America became connected and made history in many ways. Connected by the killer(s) of a dreamers and dreams. Today we are once again connected as blacks, and as a nation. Connected by the possibility of electing the first black president of the United States. This would be a dramatic step in achieving Dr King’s dream of racial equality.

Rather than give my perspective on what all this means in the various parts of the country,
I think it would be wiser to share with you an interview conducted by one of the America's great black bloggers and afrospear member, Shawn Williams, publisher of Dallas South.

Shawn had the opportunity with interview one of America's greatest news icon's CNN Anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien. They talked about tonight’s special airing at 8 p.m. Central on CNN titled The King Assassination:Witness to Murder more HERE
