This Monday, we will mark 27 years of observing Martin Luther King Day. Some states began honoring Dr. King on January 20, 1986.
King would have been eighty-four. He was gunned down on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis by an assassin on April 4, 1968. If he were alive today he’d see how much has changed in our nation.
Since King's death every struggling civil rights group has affixed themselves to his passionate cause for justice.
