Remembering a man, his determined cause and the movement he guided

Jan. 20 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day to remember the slain civil rights leader and the movement for equal treatment and justice he epitomized, beginning with Rosa Parks’ arrest in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Ala., through King’s death in 1968. Does observing this date every year help us to recall and learn from the past, or does it keep us chained to a past from which we have largely moved on?
