"I spent my early years walk- ing up and down the Rehoboth Avenue," Richardson said. "It was indeed a very enjoyable time and if I had to do it all over again, I'd let my son do it." After introductory levity, Richardson focused on the pro- gressive struggle toward equality between all mankind. "It is the 40th anniversary of some great things in our country," he said. "The 40th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King as the Time Magazine Man of the Year, the first African- American on the cover, the 40th anniversary he was designated the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Richardson also spoke on a generation gap over which segre- gation did not cross. "Our young people don't understand the lega- cy of Martin Luther King," he said. "They don't know about walking seven miles each way to I tell my son Julian these things, he says 'Those are the old days.' Richardson finished by encour- aging community. "We have to create more venues for people to come together," Richardson said. "This is not just a celebration for us, but for the entire community. So that we can work together. We want America to understand that as we stiive to live up to the great promise of our democracy."
