A Piece of History ...

On the heels of MLK Day and Barack Obama's inauguration, I started wondering about what happened to MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech.

A friend of mine, a USC graduate, told me a great story about how former USC basketball coach George Raveling was handed a copy of the speech by King after leaving the stage. Raveling, 26 at the time, was doing some minor security detail near the stage.

Sure enough, ESPN's Outside the Lines has a great interview with Raveling about it. What a great job of looking behind the scenes at a great moment in history.
