Martin Luther Kings dreams gone to waste

Black American civil rights leader Martin Luther King addresses crowds during the March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC.

It’s been more than half a century since Doctor Martin Luther King Junior was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. Perhaps the most iconic African American figure in modern history, Doctor King had a dream.

King is revered for advancing civil rights and equality for blacks through nonviolence and civil disobedience. In short, Doctor King wanted justice not only for the oppressed African-Americans, but also the poor. But with a quick look at the state of the affairs in the US, it’s easy to realize that Martin Luther King’s dream has still not turned into reality.
