A black pastor and conservative activist believes, for the most part, the “dream” Dr. Martin Luther King talked about 50 years ago has been realized.

Bishop Council Nedd II is a board member of Project 21, a leadership network. When King spoke on the National Mall in 1963, Nedd’s mother was there that day to hear the speech.

"It was something that was constantly talked about in my home,” Nedd recalls.

Nedd, Council “Dr. King, I think, would be pleased with the progress this country has made,” Nedd tells OneNewsNow. “I could make a strong argument that Dr. King's dream has been realized."

Nedd says the King speech is a far cry from the race-baiting event recently held to commemorate the "I have a dream" speech.

"The speakers who lambasted the country and lambasted the government, and the various things they were talking about at the 50th anniversary, were not honoring Dr. King's dream and his vision,” Nedd says.

Nedd calls it a slap in the face to Dr. King's legacy not to acknowledge that black America has reached a point where the dreams of more lack Americans are being met.
