Rep. Laura Richardson (California)

When we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, we are celebrating the best of America.  As a result of Dr. King's vision, barriers were broken and opportunities have been created.  From the bus boycotts in Birmingham to the marches across the Edmund Pettis Bridge in my hometown of Selma, it was his courage that forged the path for me to be elected Alabama's first African-American congresswoman, and for that I am eternally grateful.
