The Congressional Black Caucus Honors a Civil Rights Legend
Rep. Yvette Clarke (New York)
As a proud beneficiary of the civil rights movement, it is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to witness the unveiling of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. This magnificent monument will give me the opportunity to reflect on Dr. King, civil rights leaders and everyday Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice. It is up to all of us to fulfill our obligation to continue the pursuit of Dr. King's dream.
