The Congressional Black Caucus Honors a Civil Rights Legend
Rep. John Conyers (Michigan)
When we honor Dr. King, we must recognize that his message extended beyond the 'I Have a Dream' speech. He fought for jobs, justice and peace for all people. He took on the North's dehumanizing forms of segregation, and marched with garbage collectors, autoworkers, Teamsters and other organized labor groups to demand fair pay and dignity for workers of all races.
