Panderbear was an adolescent when Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech to the 1963 March on Washington. The essential and enduring truths of his message have informed Panderbear's philosophy ever since. Anyone who can listen to his words and not be moved is truly lost.
On April 3, 1968 King attended a rally at Mason Temple, world headquarters of the Church of God in Christ, and delivered his "I've Been to the Mountaintop" address. He was assassinated the next day.
Martin Luther King was not perfect. He was after all just a man. But Panderbear judges King the greatest man of his time. His legacy endures.
