EDITORIAL: King’s devotion to civil rights worth remembering today

TERRE HAUTE — Martin Luther King, Jr. accomplished much in his short life, which was devoted mostly to advocating and campaigning for civil rights. His was a peaceful campaign that culminated in violence at the hands of an assassin.

King’s remarkable and lasting impact on American life and culture is recognized today, a national holiday.

In observance, we dedicate this page to King’s legacy and memory. Below is a reflective essay from Terre Haute native Kiel Majewski, who recently toured King’s boyhood home in Atlanta, Ga. At right is a collection of MLK quotations compiled by local pastor Dwayne Malone.

We appreciate Majewski’s and Malone’s contributions to this page as we honor the life and cause of a great American.
