Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 2020

It’s a new decade.

The truth remains as it was.

MLK quote Brad Nixon (640x404)

Located in a grassy area on the south side of the Los Angeles County Superior Court building, Compton Civic Plaza, Compton, California.

Injustice persists.

A day to remember what matters.

  1. And a day to rededicate ourselves to action. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter,” King said, and “The time is always right to do what is right.” There is no better time for speaking out worldwide than now.

    • Well recalled and well said. Thank you. Carry on. Speak out.

  2. It is regrettable that a quote of such import to our democracy should be essentially buried in the courtyard of a remote superior court that 99.99% of the country has never heard of. A better location would be in Washington D.C. In front of the Department of Justice.

    • The good news is that I’ve seen that line from Dr. King on banners and signs in many, many of the demonstrations and marches in the past 3 years. As for having it installed anywhere near the Department of Justice (as in — on this planet), perhaps in another administration.
