Commemorating 50th Year Anniversary

“Fifty years ago today, the life of a great Georgian and historic civil rights leader was cut short far too soon. Thankfully, the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., endures. On this anniversary and on every day, we remember the equality and justice that Dr. King fought for on behalf of all mankind.”

Today we honor a pioneer for civil rights, and one of the most influential individuals who helped foster the passage of the Fair Housing Act. Please take some time out of your day today to reflect on the past 50 years and the progress we as a country have made towards ensuring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream becomes a reality.
