Today is the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While remembered primarily for his advocacy of nonviolence and his famous “I Have a Dream” speech at the 1963 March on Washington, King was working on another march on Washington — the Poor People’s Campaign — when an assassin killed him in Memphis in 1968. My second blog post for UNC Press discusses how today’s public memory treats Dr. King’s legacy and what it obscures about his work and vision.
