Had a blessed time last night giving the keynote for Oklahoma City University’s annual MLK Celebration. The lively crowd included former United States 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge and current Oklahoma City University president Robert Henry, hip-hop star Kanye West’s grandfather (pictured right and who participated in the nation’s first ever sit-in), and prominent Oklahoma City attorney/CPA Jeff Trevillion.
I was especially blessed with the impressive young people that performed and attended. Without a doubt, they were extremely talented, but it was their sincere humility and willingness to serve the community and their passion for seeing the true legacy of Dr. King that pleased me most. I truly believe that for many of them they will move truly move “Beyond the Dream” and truly get to know and work toward Dr. King’s vision and desire for a nation that has a “radical redistribution of wealth and economic power” so that everyone has access to adequate food, water, shelter, education, health, and opportunities!
