  •  I remember the first time I listened to him (4+ / 0-)

    it was during the live feed of the NAACP convention (If you ever needed to vote speech)

    I was transfixed, and while listening my husband got home from work and stopped dead in his tracks to listen ...after a few minutes he asked me "who is that?"

    I had missed the introduction and had to go back and find out - I was determined that more online folks who don't normally listen to NAACP speeches would get the opportunity to hear what this man had to say.  

    The hair was standing up on my arms while he preached/teached.

    I watched the audience lifted up out of their chairs in response.

    He has that gift.  And it comes from the inside of the man - not just words on paper.  You can feel it.

    "If you're in a coalition and you're comfortable, you know it's not a broad enough coalition." Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon
