Living in the Past, Local Edition

Downtown

Just two days after “I Have a Dream” in Washington, D.C., the local “I Have a Dreamers” started in on their marching in front of Jefferson Bank.

And the P-D is right:  Even now, a half century later, the legacy lives on.  One of the marchers, a 32-year old St. Louis City alderman by the name of William Lacy Clay, rode the publicity of doing that into running for and winning a race for Congress in 1968.  He’d stay in Congress until 2000, when he essentially willed the seat to his eponymous son, who is still there.

Maybe one day, we’ll be able to overcome constant overcoming.
