Remembering Dr. King

Several years ago when my family was living in the Washington, D.C. area, my son Andrew was assigned a freshman history project that required him to write about several famous quotes on key monuments in the city. One of the monuments Andrew and I visited was the newly built MLK Jr. Memorial. What came as a great shock to us was not the discovery of what was included in Dr. King’s quotes over his career, but what was missing.

Click here to read this USA Today article of mine (that was published during the 50th Anniversary celebration of Dr. King’s March on Washington and his “I Have A Dream” speech) to find out what we discovered.
