I feel honoured and humbled, to speak to you, Martin Luther King.
Thank you. But we are all equal – that was the message I spent my life trying to spread. Everyone can be great. I feel privileged to have been able to play a part in the struggle, along with many others, for civil equality, at a time when the odds were heavily stacked against black citizens.
But that was the wonderful thing! You brought about change through peaceful
means, just like Gandhi in India.
Yes, he was a real inspiration to me.
And one who, sadly, like my husband here, was killed by an assassin.
That was me, apparently, though it remains in doubt, even today. King did make a lot of enemies during his life, especially when he became such a huge figure in politics towards the end.
Without his support in the elections, I might never have been president. I will always be grateful to him.
And we to you, for passing the Civil Rights Act.
