MLK event 'all about the youth'

50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, Spokane civil rights leaders say his lessons more relevant than ever

Civil rights scholar and Kitakyushu University professor Miyuki Kita echoes these remarks: "I think MLK is regarded (by students) as only the leader of the civil rights movement because Japanese high school world history textbooks only mention MLK and the March on Washington in 1963". She emphasized that we have lost some of our humanity and has challenged us to ask, "Is what I am about to say, publish or post on Facebook humane?"

In less than a year after releasing Where Do We Go From Here, a sniper's bullet ripped through King's neck placing him in a long line of the movement's martyrs.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Professor Kurosaki has studied King's life and nonviolent methods, but believes the US and Japan view the idea of nonviolence in very different ways.

"Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars".

"A quote from his speech that stuck with me was, 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that". At a later date, they will replace the negative perception with positive words. Participating choirs include the Ambassador's Concert Choir, Central Presbyterian Church Choir, Evangelistic Baptist Church of Christ's TJ Choir and the Wesley United Methodist Church Choir.

"She remained a bold and dedicated champion of civil rights throughout her lifetime, and her witness should inspire our own", DiNardo said.

Family of five rescued from debris of home following California mudslides
Already, the incident is deadlier than the 2005 California mudslide - which took place only 20 miles from Tuesday's disaster. Dave Zaniboni says crews are making rescues across the foothill enclave of Montecito northwest of Los Angeles .

John Dickerson named new co-host of "CBS This Morning"
Dickerson, 49, to replace Charlie Rose as the third co-host of " CBS This Morning ", a spot left empty since Mr. Shortly after the report, Rose apologized for his behavior in a statement .

We forget King's scathing analysis of white Christians, political moderates, and America's economic and militaristic ways, but that isn't because King hid his convictions. In April 1968, he was attending a workers' strike in Tennessee.

After King's death, Jones said, "his opponents worked like beavers on the local level, on city councils, school boards, in state legislatures".

"I think the King committee has done an incredible job strategically putting this celebration together so that if you really want to learn this history, you can", White said. "You can't fight violence with violence", said Mike Conley, a guard for the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association.

In hard-hitting words he continued: "We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people". "Otherwise, we're in this never-ending spiral that we're in the middle of right now". "We want them to understand that we understand what they are going through". For Reagan, at King's death we need not lament the sickness of our racist nation but mourn King's refusal to submit to Jim Crow's authority over black lives. Even in a polarized and divisive environment, King said we must become humane to move forward or else we will all perish as fools, her father used to say.

"'I am somebody' is the one phrase that resonates in my spirit when my mind reflects on the life and legacy of Dr. King". He practiced it, and he preached it.

The weapon of love eventually overcame those of hate, such as bombs and guns, Scott said.
