A Thea Thought

On Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Some would say that the dream has become a nightmare.  We have definitely moved forward in terms of following the dream and celebrating the dream.  The legal machinery is in order.  The nation, as an institutional and constitutional reality, has recognized the validity of what Martin Luther King called the "check" that had been written, not just for black people, but for all people who have come here to claim the heritage and to claim the dream."

--Thea's interview with Joe Smith - WMTV, Milwaukee, WI, 1988
May Sister Thea intercede for your spiritual and physical healing in the new year.  Wishing you a very Happy and Holy New Year!
