Remembering MLK 50 Years Later

It’s not over. It wasn’t over with the bullet he took on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel.

The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee is hosting a special commemorative web site to mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination.

King came to Memphis because poverty and injustice were there, because the sanitation workers weren’t getting the tiny raises, the basic dignity they asked for. Today’s Memphis is still a place of vast disparity. Appropriately, the web site includes a call to peace and action.

No Justice, No peace;
Know Justice, Know Peace”
is our rallying cry.

It doesn’t end, this journey. It can’t. Not in a bullet. Not while there is still injustice in the world. Not until “justice rolls down like waters…”

Take the pledge.
