The Fun of Living Together, Author Roberta Grimes with Kelley Glover
“Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say, ‘Wait.’ But … when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she can’t go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little mental sky … when you are forever fighting a degenerating sense of ‘nobodiness’ – then you will understand why we find it difficult to wait.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. – from Letter from Birmingham Jail, April, 1963 “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’… I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King, Jr., from his I Have a Dream Speech, August, 1963 Dr. King has waited long enough! It’s time for us to come together and make his dream come true. Roberta Grimes is a small-business attorney and an afterlife researcher. Kelley Glover is a singer and music instructor whose “U BETTER Sing!” program teaches children the joy of sight-singing from the heart. We hope you will join us in coming together to end forever all racial divisions. Dr. King’s dream still beckons to us. Now the future can begin!
