George Raveling on MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963

The Pure Hoops Quick Hitters

The most famous Civil Rights speech of all time was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington, DC on August 28, 1963. At the time, George Raveling was a 26 year old Villanova graduate who was starting his coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater. George was a 6'4" tall former player at 'Nova and volunteered for Dr. King's security detail on that historic day. After the speech, as Dr. King was leaving the podium, George asked him for the typewritten copy of the speech, which George treasures to this day. That's remarkable enough, but when George tells the "story behind the story" of Dr. King's speech, he reveals a fascinating bit of history.

Racism is nothing new. In fact, previous generations of African Americans faced much more overt racism than we see today. Hall of Famers George Raveling & Wayne Embry have the receipts and they'll tell their stories. Both came of age in the 1950's and reached the pinnacle of success in the 1970's & '80's. Their success in not only overcoming discrimination, but rising to the very top of their respective professions provides a timeless lesson for all of us. At 23:30 is this story: George provided security for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963 and he shares a story from that day that few if any people have ever heard. Wayne also shares the amazing story of his former teammates Maurice Stokes and Jack Twyman, who took the concept of "brotherhood" and caring to an incredibly high level.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

George Raveling: On The Power of Books

Big Questions with Cal Fussman

Cal sits down with a national treasure, George Raveling, to talk about some of the impactful moments of George’s life. That includes the day in August of 1963 when George was a bodyguard on stage as Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his I Have A Dream speech. As Dr. King folded the speech and walked off stage, George asked Dr. King if he could have it and Dr. King handed it to him. George would become basketball coach at Washington State, Iowa and USC, a coach on the 1984 U.S. Olympic basketball team that contained Michael Jordan and Larry Bird and a member of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame. This episode of Big Questions focuses on George through his love of books. Few people appreciate books the way George Raveling does. George is often seen walking around with shopping bags full of them that he hands out to friends. There are many takeaways in the way George reads books and the way he honors them. After you listen, your reading habits may never be the same.
