       MLK's America still a world of trouble

"We are here to celebrate the courageous individuals who made a stand against injustice in the same manner as Dr. King, Jr.", said Kevin Shepard, Jr., president of the Nu Theta chapter.

Students on the Old Dominion University campus will gather to march in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. on Saturday from 11 a.m.to 1:30 p.m. Martin Luther King Jr. and that will keep him alive, keep his vision and his dream alive until we actually get there. Day themes of diversity and empowerment.

Before signing the proclamation, Trump praised the slain civil rights leader for "standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal". But, as reporters in the Netherlands demonstrated this week, asking politicians who make offensive statements to account for their remarks can be a public service, by at least attaching some sort of social embarrassment to making such comments.

On Friday night's episode of CNN Tonight, Don Lemon once again tackled President Trump's "shithole" remark. He's trying to deny that he used those words.

"Today and every day let's honor Dr. King's legacy by coming together as Hoosiers and as Americans and continuing to advocate for a fair playing field for everyone", Young says.

"We are proud to be partnering with Grace Centers of Hope as they have a far reaching impact on those in need in the community", Kevin McDaniel, mayor of Auburn Hills said.
