Saluting Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today’s remembrance of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., comes at a fraught time in the life of the U.S. I have been thinking for days about how to mark it, being acutely aware of my limitations as a writer in the face of this meaningful day. Finding this blog post was a gift. The writer is Daniel Little, a philosopher of social science. The point of the post is that the Civil Rights Revolution is the proper Second American Revolution. Please follow the link and read Little’s words. Let us all continue to think about how to keep the “arc of the moral universe” bending toward justice, to use Dr. King’s unsurpassed phrasing. Then let us act to bend the arc toward justice faster.
