Dr. King's Monument in Washington DC

Martin Luther King Jr. and the long walk to freedom.

Earlier this week on January 15, 2019, Martin Luther King Junior would have turned 90 if his life hadn’t been abruptly ended by an assassin on April 4, 1968. In 2019, MLK Jr. day is being observed for the first time by the company I work for and the company is urging employees to engage in a National Day of Service in recognition of MLK’s life and legacy. The company’s acknowledgement for me is both a sign of momentum and anxiety in the comprehensive dialogue about Diversity & Inclusion in America.
