When I reflect upon the life of Dr. King Jr. I believe we need to understand our past, appreciate where we have made progress, analyze where we have regressed -and unite as a society for the long march ahead to fully embrace and realize the dream of brother and sisterhood shared by Dr. King Jr.
We must acknowledge that we do not live in a post-race society. We've lost too many youth of color to violence in our streets, war, prison and poverty to "declare victory".
We must acknowledge our past, right our wrongs as a nation and move forward, together.
