Martin Luther King Jr. is among the most favorably remembered figures in American history. At times he reaches an almost mythic status, a heavenly figure sent to trumpet the melodies of equality and freedom.
Each year at this time, Eastern Michigan University and this publication pay tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. Today you’ll likely hear about his contribution to his fellow man, what it means for your life today and a host of other good messages we like to drape over Dr. King forty-four years after his death.
