Clarence B. Jones: The 80th Birthday of Dr. King and the Inauguration of Obama as President

I found this article on the Huffington Post very affecting. It is written by one of the speechwriters for Martin Luther King, Jr., and it gives his perspective on Barack Obama's election and the 80th birthday of Dr. King.

Much is made by some of the old Civil Right movement activists, and how Obama represents a new generation, and new style, of black leadership. Jones's gives his opinion of how Dr. King might have viewed the Obama election, with a lot of interesting insights and perspectives on King and his legacy.
