he has a dream
The monumental Stone Mountain controversy
Fifty-two summers ago, Martin Luther King challenged our nation with these words: “Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.”
Today, some dream of placing a freedom bell on that mountain.
I have another dream today:
I have a dream that one fine day a little black boy and a little white boy will stand together side by side on top of Stone Mountain;
I have a dream that on that day they will pee together down the face of Stone Mountain;
I have a dream that their pee will flow together down the face of that mountain and stain the graven images of three men who dreamed a dream that was a nightmare;
I have a dream those graven images will dissolve away and this nation will wake from that nightmare;
I have a dream . . .
