Ocean City Celebrates Dr. King's Legacy

Four simple words. But their simplicity is deceiving, for they will endure as long as civilization endures, pure and resonant and meaningful.

Dreams are goals, the blueprints for achievement, and this goal was among the noblest of all. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal".

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.at news conference in Greenwood, Mississippi on July 21, 1964. This year will mark the 50th anniversary of his death.

Others reflected on the quote in Memphis, in front of the Lorraine Motel balcony where King was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

"It is our hope to provide the students of Grand Haven with the knowledge and tools necessary to be empathetic and caring citizens who understand history and its impact on us today so they might live in a society where people are judged only by the content of their character - not the color of their skin or where they are from", Livingston said.

Marvin Scott is joined by the Rev. Al Sharpton, founder and president of the National Action Network, an organization committed to continuing the legacy of Martin Luther King. Yet as we celebrate the first MLK day with President Trump in office, we must remember what is often lost from popular history and public memory during our memorializing. Milton said Chelle Luper Wilson, the daughter of late Oklahoma City civil rights activist Clara Luper, will be keynote speaker, while Midwest City Councilwoman Christine Price Allen will serve as emcee.

Another high-profile candidate, Ward, was an early favorite of former Trump adviser Steve Bannon. McSally also shared a stern rhetoric on immigration that Trump has often made headlines with.

"In order to fulfill a dream, it's going to take a team that's going to demonstrate love and not hate", Cleophus Smith said.

This vision was based on the faith that a human community that embraced love and justice will exist in time because all life is interrelated and interdependent, and humans are therefore, linked together by divine providence in a common destiny. The dream was powerful and compelling, and it made us a better nation, but it is not reality. Throughout the North, before the Civil War, there were more and more free African Americans (as there also were in New Orleans for historic reasons). The Hispanic unemployment rate dropped a full point in the a year ago and is close to the lowest in recorded history. That would be "intentional discrimination".

Elsewhere, International House in Davis is planning a tribute to King from 6:30 to 9 p.m., Sunday with master drummer Mamadou Traore performing his second Drum Circle and Tribute. "The way of peace is a better way".

Officials said the chapter has awarded $175,000 in scholarships to more than 100 boys in the last 26 years. We are segregated in some regards. She emphasized that we have lost some of our humanity and has challenged us to ask, "Is what I am about to say, publish or post on Facebook humane?" "I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you".

The Black Entertainment Television personality and managing principal of Baltimore-based JIJ Communications challenged the adults in the crowd to see beyond the hair and the attitude and the sagging trousers of today's young people and instead see their promise, recognize the talents they may not recognize in themselves, and nurture those talents - even in the young people they may fear.
