Leave a Seat Empty at the Thanksgiving Table

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2006

The dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial provides a chance to look back on the legacy of Dr. King, and what he would be fighting for today. Dr. King was a champion, not just of the Civil Rights movement, but of the poor, a message of King's that seems lost now. It is entirely appropriate that there is a memorial being built in honor of King. But I have no doubt at all that King would have preferred to be memorialized by a nation committed to the equality he died for.
