Special Keynote Speaker is Georgetown University sociology professor, Michael Eric Dyson. Dyson, a frequent contributor to the New York Times and comentator on MSNBC, says of Dr. King, "He was one of the greatest Americans in the history of this land.  He grew, deepened his understanding of American democracy and the opposition to it, and began to call upon America to forge a new path.  He believed that America was essentially a dream.  And as a dream, it could be reimagined."
