Fifty years ago Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, where he had come alongside sanitation workers fighting for a living wage and humane working conditions. King died fully committed to the idea that this nation–and, indeed, the whole world–cannot wait for justice. A half century later, his clarion call for people of good will to join the struggle remains as urgent as ever. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this year’s event! The march goes on–and you have a part to play.
You can access video from all the day’s events here.
