Thoughts from our friend, retired LB journalist Joe Segura:
"I believe Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, was a prophet of peace. However he wasn't a one-issue prophet. Aside from the race issue, Dr. King opposed the Vietnam conflict (war was never declared) both because it targeted people of color and because the conflict impacted minorities. He was a frequent visitor to California and the Los Angeles area seeking support for his causes. The issue of poverty led Dr. King to support the push by the trash haulers for a 10 cent an hour raise. The beautiful man whose 'I have a dream' (considered by many as the best speech of the century) is greatly missed, and so is his message."

"Dr. King was a giant in speaking truths to power. His words and actions outlive him."
