This iReport is part of an assignment:
MLK and Justice
I think we also tend to gloss over much of what this great man went through in terms of being unjustly jailed and so forth and much of his teachings with respect to the importance of breaking unjust laws.
Personally I don't want to see the anniversary take on a kind of annual Christmas-like celebration where people gather and discuss MLK solely in this historical context and forget the true teachings of the man, and his true legacy; which was to advocate for justice in all its forms.
