|Dr. Clyde Rivers|
The Martin Luther King Jr. Association - Santa Clara Valley, invited Ambassador Dr. Clyde Rivers to participate in the final Freedom Train Celebration. On this historic day, January 19, 2015 - Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Ambassador Clyde Rivers was asked by the association to join the last ride the Freedom Train would make. The Freedom Train was setup over 30 years ago by Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King’s wife.
Dr. Rivers said, “I was humbled to be asked by this prestigious association to be the speaker and to ride on the final Freedom Train excursion. What Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did for this country and the nations of the world created an impact we may never completely understand, but we know the world is a much better place because of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his belief in civil rights for all. The cultural and ethnic diversity on the Freedom Train really showed me that we can all get along if we live the Golden Rule, ‘Treat others the way you want to be treated.’”
