The Congressional Black Caucus Honors a Civil Rights Legend
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas)
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was the architect of the greatest social and moral movement of our times. As a student worker in the SCLC movement, I was able to see firsthand the careful and meticulous building, block by block, of the lives of the most vulnerable and the un-empowered. This monument will serve as a testament to the enduring legacy left to all of us by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His words and deeds continue to dictate the moral roadmap that all people, regardless of race, color or creed, can follow to fill a generation of people with hope and success. Let us accept the challenge of Dr. King's words to do good and to allow his greatness to live through each and every one of us as a lasting gift to America and the world.
