Reflect: 50 Years Since the Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Progressive leaders discuss how America can combat racial injustice in order to fulfill the dream of Martin Luther King Jr.

April 4, 2018, marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. While America has made significant gains in racial and economic justice, much has also stayed the same. We asked eight progressives what we must do to fulfill King’s dream. Join the conversation at #CAPTalksRace.
