Powerful: Olbermann talks about his dad, Satchel Paige and King’s speech

Friday, August 30, 2013

The segment lasted 3:32 and at the end I felt a chill running down my spine. Thus is the talent of Keith Olbermann. His recollection of his father using Satchel Paige to illustrate the roots of segregation was powerful as anything I heard during the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s famous speech.
