Local activists to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on death anniversary
King was in New Orleans on more than one occasion, and three of our photographs here date from those trips. He was assassinated the next day at the old Lorraine Motel.
"You have no f-ing right to co-opt the legacy of Dr. King almost 50 years after you murdered him", tweeted John Weiss, a writer and filmmaker.
Tuesday's "Fight Racism, Raise Pay" protest was among two dozen in cities across the country. In the last 50 years we've passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Title IX and nationwide marriage equality.
Never really neglected, but not fully developed either, is the park itself, and that is expected to change with announcement of a $500,000 fundraising campaign to upgrade the site and the nearby Indy Parks center.
Marchers also came from Arkansas and Missouri to join their Tennessee colleagues. The numbers of those who would come onto the streets as part of the anti-war movement would escalate from April 1965 to April 1967, including a hundred thousand people at protests across the country over the weekend of 15-16 October 1965. The question is, "If I do not stop to help the sanitation workers, what will happen to them?"
Pentagon responds to criticism over civilian deaths in Mosul blast
Widespread displacement is one, with Iraqi authorities saying that more than 200,000 people have fled west Mosul since February. Joseph Scrocca, the US spokesman in Baghdad for the American-led coalition fighting ISIS, said Thursday.
In the speech King said, "Some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak". "It's very important that we stick together, stand together and fight together".
Recorded phone conversations between King and Johnson (click on the "play" button above to hear a few audio clips) show the evolution of a working relationship that made great strides in America's pursuit of racial justice. At one point, he called Trump a "narcissistic tweeter".
"We are not those who believe the bad lies that the best way to better America is to attack public education and attack Muslims and attack immigrants and attack living wages", said Barber, progressively raising his voice. "How in the world can America attack refugees when we sing 'God bless America, shed his grace on us, ' but we don't have grace for immigrants?"
"We believe there's still some unfinished business that we are obligated and have to do to put in place for these men who have given their lives to the city of Memphis". And we must rejoice as well, for surely this is the first time in our nation's history that a significant number of its religious leaders have chosen to move beyond the prophesying of smooth patriotism to the high grounds of a firm dissent based upon the mandates of conscience and the reading of history.
"You are a colossal fraud and an evil, vicious one at that." said the typewritten letter, which was reportedly accompanied by tapes of King's alleged extramarital affairs.

Rallies also were scheduled in Florida, California, Illinois, Massachusetts and MI. He wanted the government to provide a living wage-a living wage-because he understood it was government policy that created slavery, that created income disparity, and he knew that people needed a living wage and that wars and racism were hindering us from doing the right thing economically. Moments later, King was shot.
King was assassinated in Memphis exactly one year after his Vietnam speech.
The events will continue until April 4, 2018, which will mark the 50th anniversary of MLK's death.
