Video: Tom Mboya & MLK speech

Check out this clip of the late Tom Mboya and Martin Luther King Jr. giving a speech at a 1965 civil Rights Rally in Washington, DC. From all I've heard and read about the man I think Tom Mboya would have made a fine President of the Republic of Kenya, RIP.

African Nationalist Thomas Joseph Mboya coordinated an "airlift" in 1959 of 81 Kenyan students to the USA to attend college. With the help of Dr. King, the African American Students Foundation and its sponsors, Harry Belafonte, Jackie Robinson, and Sidney Poitier, Mboya raised sufficient funds to cover the students' travel expenses. One of the students was a certain Barack Husein Obama snr., the late father of US President Barrack Obama. This rally was in Washington DC, 1959
