Del’s Launch, Shenandoah visit show Dr. King’s ‘finer world to live in — “Make a career of humanity, commit yourself to the noble struggle for Equal Rights – you will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country and a finer world to live in.”- Rev.

It truly feels like a finer life and a finer nation!
