“Over 50 years ago, Dr. King captured the attention of the nation as a proponent of social justice,” said Mayor Malik. “His words are as relevant and impactful today as they were during the Civil Rights Movement. His lessons continue to resonate through the years and on this holiday, we take pause to remember Dr. King’s life and legacy as we recommit ourselves to the important work of calling out injustice wherever it persists.”
