More Than Just Race

On this day, let’s remember that Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t only crusade for racial equality. He campaigned for workers’ rights, America’s wars, violent government, poverty, and more. Dr. King wasn’t in Memphis because of race; he was in Memphis because of the Poor People’s Campaign. It was the fight for economic justice  (for all races) that had King in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4th, 1968. King was against injustice of all types. He focused on more than just race.
