mlk

So I asked my students to tell each other something interesting that they had learned while working on their final papers. And one girl said that she never knew before that her grandpa actually had heard Dr. King speak. Her grandfather had been singing at the event, and gotten to see MLK up close. And the thing he remembered was that Dr. King had been nervous. But, my student's grandpa had said, once he started speaking he wasn't nervous.

So what do we learn? Not to be so afraid of public speaking, perhaps.

I've heard doctor King speak. This would indicate that I'am about the same age as your grandpa.
