Martin Luther King Jr. Remembered

By  | 

A woman who covered Martin Luther King Junior for the Washington Post in the 1960s says his dream of equality has NOT been realized.

Dorothy Butler Gilliam says that progress has been made. But she
says many of the things King worked to change have NOT.

For example, she says poor and minority children continue to
fall behind.

She says while America is more multicultural today, it is also
more segregated.

Gilliam says progress has been made. She says the civil rights
movement succeeded in helping to motivate others to seek more
rights, including women and gays.

Gilliam spoke at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's official
Martin Luther King Junior Day event.
