King’s impression of Jamaica
August 06, 2012

King was repeatedly impressed by the unity in Jamaica, and related to his congregation at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Jamaica’s national slogan: “Out of many people, one people.” Inspired, King shared his hopes, that “One day, here in America, I hope that we will see this and we will become one big family of Americans.

One big family of Americans.” Listen here.
