Below is an invitation I received for a commemoration of the assassination of Dr. King and the 50th anniversary of his trip to India. It is interesting to see Barack Obama fit into this commemoration. There are still high hopes that Obama will follow in the footsteps of King and Gandhi given Obama’s community organizing background and emergence from an African American political base in Chicago.
