I am the culmination of his dreams almost fulfilled. I wish that I could say his dreams have come true, but people and life are much more complicated than that. In some ways, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of us today. There is integration. There is black excellence, and there are white … Continue reading The Legacy of MLK
