“Let us remember those who have died for justice, for they have given us life.” Cesar Chavez
In the 44 years since the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we as a country have come a long way; however, the fight and struggle for justice and equality are far from over. While Dr. King was most outwardly an advocate for the African-American community during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, his voice and his message resonate throughout the country as a whole. All people who have been oppressed or discriminated against or victimized can take Dr. King’s words as a voice of inspiration. We are all in the struggle for equality together and we must all work together to ensure that everyone is free.
