7/3/1955 in St. Louis, MO  EVENT: 2nd AA International  TYPE: AA, Male, Story, Historical, Author

AA International in St. Louis, MO 1955

Author of the Big Book story, Jim's Story, James is an example that, "We are people who normally would not mix." (Big Book p.17)

This talk is by an African American physician speaking to a mixed race group in 1955.

AA truly anticipated Martin Luther King, JR's dream:

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Jim shares his story from the heart and how AA enabled him to truly live up to his potential.
