A local politician played silent but crucial role in Dr. King’s famous speech

On the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous “I Have a Dream” speech we remember another black politician from Chicago who some credit as the source of one of King’s passages. We look back at the life and legacy of Archibald Carey, Jr. and celebrate the tradition of pastors borrowing sermons from their fellow Church leaders. Photo: Flickr/VU Connected
