April 4, 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968. The night before, King spoke the above words which seem to have foreshadowed his own untimely demise. During the 13 years of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s leadership of the modern American Civil Rights Movement, from December, 1955 until April 4, 1968, African Americans achieved more genuine progress toward racial equality in America than the previous 350 years had produced. King has remained the most widely known African-American leader of his era, and the most public face of the civil rights movement, along with its most eloquent voice.
