More than half a century after an assassin’s bullet silenced Martin Luther King. and 35 years after the nation began observing a federal holiday in his honor, MLK’s life and legacy still resonate.   As the preeminent voice of the civil rights movement, King’s eloquence and vision for a united America made him an icon. His powerful words – delivered through sermons, speeches and books – symbolize a utopia to which our nation always aspires.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2021/01/18/
