Can We Keep the Dream? On Easter, the
42nd Anniversary of Dr. King's Assassination
by Danny Schechter News Dissector
Ordinarily, I don’t post on a Sunday but today is special—the 42nd anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a brave and prophetic voice in the years he became a moral and political leader before he became a martyr for justice.

During his time, he was spied on and defamed, with his own share of personal contradictions, but somehow he rose above it all to set down some universal markers in the struggle for racial and social justice, as an opponent of war and an organizer — “a drum major” in his lingo, ‘It’s a kind of drum major instinct—a desire to be out front, a desire to lead the parade, a desire to be first. And it is something that runs the whole gamut of life,’ in a fight that is more urgent than ever.
