DNC Pays Tribute To King

Team Obama paid homage to Martin Luther King yesterday at the Democratic National Convention. It was only right, August 28th marked the 45th anniversary of King's monumental 'I Have A Dream' speech. 45 years later, Barack Obama, the embodiment of King's dream, becomes the first African American nominee of a major party. The King tribute included remarks by King's children, Rev. Bernice King and Martin King, and fellow Civil Rights pioneer Rep. John Lewis. If you missed the tribute, take a look at the clips above and below.
