"That's all very well, Dr King, but what do they think about it in Bristol?"
This may be a trifle parochial, but it's worth remembering that, whatever may have been going on at the Lincoln Memorial, 28th August, 1963 was a special day for civil rights here in Bristol.

The BBC have a lengthy article on the subject too. Very interesting.

Thanks for pointing me to it. (Here, for anyone who's interested.)

I see that this was only a week after Tony Benn, mentioned in the article as a leading politician involved in this movement, had returned to the House of Commons after a lengthy campaign to establish his right to sit there if the voters chose to elect him - another, and rather baroque, civil rights victory.

1963 was quite a year. But then, I'm biased.

And what did I get? The year that Mac said "You've never had it so good."
