HONORING DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING -- (Extensions of Remarks - January 20, 2004)

SPEECH OF
HON. RUSH D. HOLT
OF NEW JERSEY
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
TUESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2004

Mr. HOLT. Mr. Speaker, I rise to revise and extend my remarks.

I submit to the RECORD the remarks of Dr. Valerie Smith, the Woodrow Wilson Professor of Literature and director of the Program in African-American Studies at Princeton University. Dr. Smith delivered this speech yesterday, January 19, 2004, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As you will see, the speech draws heavily on the words of Dr. King himself. I venture to say that Dr. King's words will continue have more lasting value than anything we say here on the House floor today.
