Organizing Demonstrations in Charleston, SC

Rep. James Clyburn

U.S. Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina came of age during the Civil Rights Movement and helped to organize demonstrations in Charleston. He reflects on the content of Dr. King’s speech. “Beyond ‘I Have A Dream,’ the speech that King prepared for that day he talked about the bad check that had been returned because of insufficient funds. He used that analogy to make his point.”
