The Bronx Chronicle remembers Martin Luther King, Jr.


The Bronx Chronicle would like us all to remember the history and lasting legacy of the man and legend that was Martin Luther King, Jr.

Across the nation today, millions of Americans are taking time out to reflect on the struggles and successes of the Civil Rights Movement, as well as acknowledge the steps forward in our improving, yet still flawed, racial discourse here in America.

Martin Luther King, Jr. is widely known as a prolific Civil Rights Leader, but he was also a staunch proponent of the destruction of poverty and the rise of the working class.  As a preacher of peace, he stood firmly against war, and encouraged us all to work together, even in the face of great difficulty.

Where some past leaders’ are remembered and valued for their bombastic  and sometimes controversial passion, MLK, Jr.  was solidly and firmly a man of all peoples, and of peace.

Without his contributions to our evolving societal discourse, many of us would not be where we are today.  This acknowledgement is not a figurative one, but rather a very literal one.  We should all dedicate time to read and listen to what made the man an American legacy.
