The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr

Our Views: King's voice still lives Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. honored 50 years after assassination

That dream has yet to be fully realized. I think it's very hard to say just how much of an impact Dr. King made.

"At the same time, disparities exist". "But we kept going".

Trump proclaimed the anniversary as a day to honor King. Dr. King had traveled to the city to stand with black sanitation workers, who were striking because of dismal pay and risky working conditions.

As early as 1963, King began advocating for greater economic opportunity, Reed said.

"It's empowering, moving, to be a part of this", Russell said.

"Its aims included a number of things we don't generally think of as civil rights aims".

Each time Emily Alma, with the Unity/Peace and Justice Center, says each time she visits and views the memorial statue located in Chico's MLK Community Park, she is reminded of the continual need for increased awareness and the ongoing need for equality.

King endorsed that jobs agenda as the USA economy was moving from a manufacturing base in the early 1960s, and becoming increasingly automated. "Automation was eliminating high-paying paying union jobs that didn't require a lot of education".

"Dr. King's life and teachings will survive throughout the ages".

The slaying shocked the civil rights movement and the nation at large. Wednesday, 50 years after the civil rights icon's assassination.

As the news of King's death spread, riots broke out in black neighborhoods across the country including Chicago, Baltimore, and Washington, DC, where President Lyndon B. Johnson sent in the Army and National Guard.

The riots "helped to usher in President Nixon's law and order presidency", Reed said. "Hell be turning in his grave at this tweet", a tweet noted.

So-called 'affluenza teen' Ethan Couch released from prison
At his trial in juvenile court that year, a psychologist testifying on his behalf described Couch as suffering from "affluenza". Ethan Couch was extradited back to the US and later sentenced to 720 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation.

King had consistently advocated a non-violent approach to protest. People that I thought I'd never see, let alone have a relationship with later on in life.

Memphis Police spokesman Louis Brownlee says the department's aircraft estimated that as many as 10,000 or so had gathered for the march on Wednesday.

"The slow pace from the vantage point of African-Americans of material progress contributed to a loss of confidence in the capacity of non-violent protest to deliver". How many generations of white people grew up not being able to fully communicate and serve their God because their minds were polluted with not being their brother's keeper, not loving their neighbor and all the while sitting in churches singing, 'Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, ' and literally lived and died without the fullness of who they could have been as even white people because of that filth that was in their hearts?

"King's legacy of justice and peace, and his impact on uniting Americans", he added.

"As a minority, they needed a coalition". They needed volunteers to help people find their way around campus, and I became an usher.

Take a look at some of King's most powerful quotes in the slideshow above.

Let's honor Dr. King's memory by recommitting ourselves to principles of love and non-violence. "Not much has changed", she said.

"A mixed bag", Reed said.

I'm not saying that it makes me feel good when someone has voted against my civil rights, but I know that each and everyone of us has been raised in a homophobic society and each and everyone of us has to unlearn that homophobia.

Short excerpt from GLT's story.

"Such an honor to have had you as a father and to still have you as a teacher", she wrote on Twitter.
