“I look back on how far we have come in the last 50 years and realize that some of the gains that were made are beginning to slip away. We need to use this anniversary as a call to action to remember the petition of Dr. King not to succumb to the ‘tranquilizing drug of gradualism’ as we see hard won rights being chipped away, but to renew our commitment to the dream he so eloquently articulated.”
