"Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice for his fellow human beings, and he died because of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it is perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black, considering the evidence there evidently is that there were white people who were responsible, you can be filled with bitterness, with hatred, and a desire for revenge." Color footage of police arresting young black men. Color footage of burning buildings during riots. BW Martin Luther King delivering the "I Have a Dream" Speech in Washington (no audio obviously). White police officers assaulting black men with pepper spray and billy clubs. " We can move in that direction as a country, in great polarization, black people amongst black, white people amongst white, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and to replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand with compassion and love." Shot of RFK Delivering speech. "For those of you who are black and are tempted to be filled with hatred and distrust at the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I can only say that I feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed," VS people crying after learning of the assassination of JFK. Shot of RFK Delivering speech. "but he was killed by a white man. But we have to make an effort in the United States, we have to make an effort to understand, to go beyond these rather difficult times. My favorite poet was Aeschylus."

He died in the cause of that effort." edit "For those of you who are black and are tempted to be filled with hatred and mistrust of the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I would only say that I can also feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man. But we have to make an effort in the United States, we have to make an effort to understand, to get beyond these rather difficult times. My favorite poet was Aeschylus. He once wrote: 'Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.' What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black."

MS National Guard on patrol; TLS Nat l Guard in army transports. MS Chicago police officers kicking black men off the street, away from locked & gated stores. TLS contingent of young black men walking in street under el tracks. "When we open our eyes today and look around America, we see America not through the eyes of someone who has enjoyed the fruits of Americanism. We see America through the eyes of someone who has been the victim of Americanism. We don t see any American dream; we ve experienced only the American nightmare. We haven t benefited from America s Democracy. We ve only suffered from America s hypocrisy, and the generation that s coming up now can see it and are not afraid to say it. If you go to jail, so what! If you re black, you were born in jail. If you black you were born in jail, in the North as well as the South. Stop talking about the South, as long as you South of the Canadian border, you re South. Don t call Governor Wallace a Dixie governor, Romney is a Dixie governor. Twenty two million black victims of Americanism are waking up and they re gaining a new political conscious. They re becoming politically mature and as they develop this politically maturity their able to see the recent trends in these political elections."

BW footage of MLK s funeral. BW footage of Anti-Vietnam protestors walking down the street carrying signs (young white college students). "We can do well in this country. We will have difficult times; we've had difficult times in the past; we will have difficult times in the future. It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness; it is not the end of disorder. But the vast majority of white people and the vast majority of black people in this country want to live together, want to improve the quality of our life, and want justice for all human beings who abide in our land." Color footage of African Americans marching in protest of the Vietnam War. Color footage of police confronting hippies (1968 Democratic Convention). BW RFK sitting alone on rocky outcropping looking thoughtful and sad. "Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say a prayer for our country and for our people. Thank you very much." Cheers from the crowd.
