As we observe Black History Month, I am reminded of one of my uncle’s most famous quotes. From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he declared that he had a dream. He said, “It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed.”
For many, that creed reflects the very principles this country was built on and those enshrined in our founding documents. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream embraces life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL people. His dream includes equal rights, equality under the law, opportunity and dignity for all Americans as the one blood, one human race, regardless of skin color.
In recent history, we saw the American Dream reignited. Under the Trump administration, the Black community wasn’t pandered to, offered handouts, or pushed to embrace pro-abortion and anti-family policies. Instead, the Black community experienced breakthroughs, dignity and new opportunities to dream and succeed in life.
