week, we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. April 4th
marks the 50th anniversary of his assassination 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.
