40 years later: The Man is Dead, but the Dream Lives On

Just a quick note: today marks the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., just one day after he gave the famous “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech, he was shot at around 6:01 — 4:01 in Los Angeles.

I have been informed by some colleagues that Crenshaw High School will be leading a “Recommitment March.” Led by the senior class, the students will be marching after school to show they are still pursuing MLK’s dream. They will march from school to Leimert Park and hold a moment of silence at 4:01.
