Clarence Jones, who helped the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. write the “I Have A Dream Speech,” told a Television Critics Association panel in 2013 how the most famous part of the speech came spontaneously. It was Aug. 28, 1963: King was speaking to hundreds of thousands at the Lincoln Memorial, and millions watching on TV, when suddenly singer Mahalia Jackson called out. Here is what Jones said: Very few people know — most people do not know — that the speech that he gave was not the speech that he had intended to give. … As he was reading from the text of his prepared remarks, there came a point when Mahalia Jackson, who was sitting on the platform, said, “Tell them about the dream, Martin! Tell them about the dream.” Also Read: Why the MLK Holiday Has Become a Major Box Office Weekend Now I have often speculated that she had heard him talk in other places… and make reference to the dream. On June 23, 1963, in Detroit, he had made very express reference to the dream. When Mahalia shouted to him, I was standing about 50 feet behind him… and I saw it happening in real time. He just took the text of his speech and moved it to the left side of the lectern. … And I said to somebody standing next to me: “These people don’t know it, but they’re about to go to church.” I said that because I could see his body language change from the rear. Where he had been reading, like giving a lecture, but then going into his Baptist preacher mode.

I’m not so sure he would have departed from the text of his speech. But Mahalia Jackson was his favorite gospel singer. When Mahalia said that it was almost like a mandate to respond.

Apple CEO Tim Cook defended his company’s decision to remove right-wing social media site Parler from its online store in the wake of the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters, telling Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday, “We looked at the incitement to violence that was on [Parler}. And we don’t consider that free speech and incitement to violence has an intersection.” Apple and Google both removed Parler from their app stores this past week while Amazon Web Services announced that it would drop the site from its servers. The backlash comes after posts supporting the Capitol insurrection and the call for future skirmishes were found throughout the site in the days following the riot. A developer even created an interactive map made from dozens of videos posted to Parler during the insurrection. Apple CEO @tim_cook joined #FoxNewsSunday to discuss the company’s new race initiative. Plus, we got his reaction to the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol and his company’s standoff with the conservative-leaning app Parler. pic.twitter.com/krbsb9aut5 — FoxNewsSunday (@FoxNewsSunday) January 17, 2021 Also Read: Parler CEO John Matze Says App Might 'Never' Return Cook said that Apple is open to restoring Parler to the site if it does a better job moderating its users and removing posts that encourage violence, but insisted that it would continue to enforce its terms of service. “We obviously don’t control what’s on the internet, but we’ve never viewed that our platform should be a simple replication of the internet. We have rules and regulations and we just ask that people abide by those,” Cook said. Parler has filed a lawsuit against Amazon for removing the site from its servers, claiming a violation of federal antitrust law. During an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin, Parler CEO John Matze suggested that Amazon, Google and Apple colluded to take Parler down, claiming he was only given 24 hours notice by Amazon of their decision. “It’s very, very interesting that they all, on the exact same day without previously indicating, they never indicated to us that there was any serious or material problem with our app,” Matze said. “But on the same day, you know, all on the same day, they send us these very threatening notices.” Watch Cook’s interview on “Fox News Sunday” in the clip above.

An interview with House Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin on CNN turned emotional, as the Maryland politician exposed his raw personal feeling about leading the second impeachment trial just weeks after losing his son to suicide. “I’m not going to lose my son at the end of 2020 and lose my country and my republic in 2021,” he told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Raskin announced the death of his 25-year-old son, Tommy, on New Year’s Eve, saying that he had been experiencing chronic depression in recent years and that it became “a kind of relentless torture in the brain for him.” “Tommy was a remarkable person,” Raskin said. “He had overwhelming love for humanity and for our country, in his heart, and really for all the people of the world. We lost him on the very last day of that God-awful year, 2020, and he left us a note, which said ‘Please forgive me, my illness won today, look after each other, the animals and the global poor for me, all my love Tommy.'” Hear Raskin’s touching story in the clip below.

Jamie Raskin says as he presses forward with impeachment articles while mourning his son. #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/PFPn9X4oic — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) January 17, 2021 As difficult as losing his son has been, Raskin said that Tommy’s death has only increased his resolve to lead the impeachment trial, and his son was on his mind as he and members of his family hid from Trump supporters that attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “When we went to count the electoral college votes and [the Capitol] came under that ludicrous attack, I felt my son with me, and I was most concerned with our youngest daughter and my son-in-law — who is married to our other daughter — who were with me that day and who got caught in a room off of the House floor,” he said. “These events are personal to me. There was an attack on our country, there was an attack on our people.” Raskin joked that when Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked him to be impeachment manager, he couldn’t refuse. “I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to say no to Speaker Pelosi about anything,” he said with a grin. “She’s actually been very sensitive and thoughtful, but she wanted me to do it because she knows that I’ve devoted my life to the constitution and to the republic. I’m a professor of constitutional law. But I did it, really, with my son in my heart and helping lead the way. I feel him in my chest.” Read original story Rep.

The initiation of vaccination programs across the country may have given Americans a new sense of hope for 2021, but there is still no definite end in sight to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This puts the food service industry into an increasingly desperate position, as recovery in that sector depends on states opening back up and allowing for denser foot traffic.The extent of losses across the restaurant industry was demonstrated in a Dec. 2020 survey conducted by the National Restaurant Association. It reported that 17% of all restaurants in America had either shut down permanently or were temporarily shut down for an unknown length of time over the course of last year. A whopping 87% of remaining restaurants had reported an average decline in revenue of 36% during the same period. (Related: The Saddest Restaurant Closures In Your State.)Now, experts are predicting that one particular food service segment will have a slower road to recovery than the rest: coffee chains. Bloomberg has reported that the domestic coffee segment saw a 25% drop in sales, representing an $11.5 billion loss for the United States coffee chains. And the drop in foot traffic has affected both national mega-chains like Starbucks and Dunkin' and smaller regional chains like Bluestone Lane.Industry experts predict it will take years for coffee chains to get back on their feet, with sales not expected to be back to pre-pandemic levels until 2023.There are glimmers of hope, however: at the time of this writing, the Starbucks stock is trading slightly higher than in the weeks leading up to the dramatic plunge in March of 2020, as the scope of the coronavirus pandemic became clear.Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest restaurant news delivered straight to your inbox.

With coronavirus deaths breaking records nearly every day, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is concerned—and has a warning. A new variant is here, and it's more transmissible. That means you need to "double down" on some protective measures right now. Read on to see what he recommends—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. The New Variants of COVID-19 Will Put More People in the HospitalDr. Fauci said the new variant is cause of concern. "We're taking it really very seriously," he said. "You don't want people to panic, but you have to look at it from certain standpoint." He said there's one "from the U.K. that's essentially dominated. That's the one that is actually is seen in the United States. There's another more ominous one. That's in South Africa and Brazil. We're looking at all of them, very, very carefully."He said, "the Brits have made it very clear that it's more contagious. They say that it isn't more virulent, but, you know, we gotta be careful because the more cases you get, even though on a one-to-one basis, it's not more virulent, meaning it doesn't make you more sick or more likely to die just by numbers alone. The more cases you have, the more hospitalizations you're going to happen. The more hospitalizations you have, the more deaths you're going to have. The thing we really want to look at carefully is that does that mutation lessen the impact of the vaccine? And if it does, then we're going to have to make some modifications, but we're all over that. We're looking at that really very carefully."RELATED: 7 Tips You Must Follow to Avoid COVID, Say DoctorsWhat You Can Do Now to Beat the Mutation"I think one of the things we've got to do, and maybe the silver lining, if you want to call that, is that when you have a variant, that's really very, very, different in the sense of it's more contagious, it tells you to do two things," said Fauci. "One double down on the public health measures that we've been talking about all the time—be very compulsive as the President-elect says, at least for the first hundred days, and maybe more—everybody wear a mask, keep the distance, avoid the congregate settings, but also another important thing: The easiest way to evade this negative effect of these new isolates is to just when the vaccine becomes available, people should get vaccinated. Boy, if ever there was a clarion call for people to put aside vaccine hesitancy. If we can get, you know, the overwhelming majority of the population vaccinated, we'd be in very good shape and could beat even the mutant."RELATED: If You Feel This, You May Have Already Had COVID, Says Dr. FauciHow to Survive This PandemicSo follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
