(WASHINGTON, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) released the following statement marking the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:
“The untimely assassination may have cut short his life, but it failed to silence Dr. King, whose indomitable spirit is alive and with us today. His message of overcoming hate with love strongly resonates in the hearts of millions of Americans, inspiring new generations to continue his hard work to bring about social and economic justice. We reflect on the progress made over the last half century because of Dr. King’s faith, courage, and determination, and we recognize the challenges still before us.
