April 4, 1968 marks the 50th anniversary of King’s assassination. Let us not forget at the time of King’s premature death King was fighting for issues concerning economic inequality, employment, full citizenship, and access to safe and affordable housing. King took a stand against these issues, and today it is more important than ever to pick up the fight. “The time is always right, to do what is right!”- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
