How Long? Not Long

Year after year, this question and answer give me chills as I listen to Joseph Schwantner’s epic setting of Dr King’s words.

In this video of a fine college performance, it begins just before the 16 minute mark, but listening to the entire piece should be as much as a tradition today as basketball, renaming a street, or getting paid time off from work. In fact, I’d say it’s required listening before one laces up one’s boots and goes off to protest that BLM.
