I Never Thought This Day Would Come
There are not going to be many occations where George W. will be featured on this blog, so when you see his picture, it is because he has done something BIG!
The current president has been in office for about 62 months now and until yesterday had NEVER given a formal address the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (N.A.A.C.P.), despite it being one of the largest African American organizations in this nation.
The Prez is picturered here greeting Julian Bond, Chairman of the N.A.A.C.P., as he prepares to give his address.
I have got to say one thing for the guy, he has some very talented speech writers. It is really difficult to stand up infornt of the N.A.A.C.P. and speak about a trip to the Lorraine Motel WITHOUT ever mentioning the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
You can read his entire speech here.
