Closing Comments: The legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

It was not clear whether he planned to perform service later in the day, although his public schedule is blank. A White House spokeswoman did not return a request for comment on whether Trump had any impromptu plans to take part in a community service project.

"Russell Sugarmon and Ben Hooks, who was obviously a very nationally known civil rights leader in his own right, they were running to become the first African-American elected officials in the city, and Russell Sugarmon - who's still alive - had the best shot to win, because there were no runoffs and he was the only African-American candidate against five white candidates".

But Dr King's wife Coretta Scott King carried on his work, and dedicated her life to fighting for LGBT rights alongside civil rights - believing that he would have done exactly the same.

The president's defense appeared not to sway the sizable crowd of Haitians - waving their country's flag - who gathered near the foot of a bridge leading to Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach to jeer at Trump as the motorcade returned from the golf club. It's just another way of us showing that we are in this together. When the ceremony ended, Trump quickly exited the room, ignoring a reporter's shouted question: "Mr President are you a racist?"

Senior writer Michael Fletcher explores the origins of the East-West Major League Baseball Classic, an all-star game honoring King's life that raised funds for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).

The nationwide movement that King had dreamed of stalled- a crisis millions still face today. It is the American Dream. It's the promise stitched into the fabric of our nation, etched into the hearts of our people, and written into the soul of humankind.

Today, January 15th marks the late Martin Luther King Jr.'s 89th birthday. Day, establishing Martin Luther King Jr.

"Through his bravery and sacrifice, Dr. King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation". And that's the fearful thing for us because it's with you, and it's around every day.

Isaac Newton Farris Jr., a nephew, was among the group that attended Friday's proclamation signing. Literally. In the rawest form that you could say that. Day 2018, instead of merely relying upon a human icon for inspiration (no matter how worthy), we must find new words and power within ourselves by first taking a long, hard look in the mirror (and for a reason other than a selfie). But it should not be a day of hero worship.

The gathering also marked a great day to launch the second semester at Benedictine, he said.

"We refer to it as 'a day on, not a day off'". Liyah Myers, a 16-year-old student at Mount Airy High School, sang a solo.

Trump has appeared with King relatives in the run-up to Monday's holiday. Trump has said that is not the language he used.

The main message was action without works is dead so the journey continues.

In the eyes of both Joy Behar and guest Rep. John Lewis, Donald Trump wouldn't be president if MLK had anything to say about it. "They haven't been to the parade in years, and just to bring them out so they can see the legacy of Martin Luther King".
