As the nation finishes celebrating the 30 year old holiday of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, the civil rights movement is on the minds of many. Some hated it and more loved it. In spite of the historical significance of the movement many can rightly argue that the condition of the black and other minority groups in this country are worse than ever. WHY IS THIS? HOW CAN THIS BE? Let's explore God's word to see if it can shed some light.
At the end of his life, Dr. King's philosophy had transcended voting rights in the segregated South. His vision was about a transformed humanity, and his philosophy was that nonviolence was the key to such a transformation. Those who were impatient with the nonviolent movement believed that the whites who held the reigns of power would not be pursuaded to let them go by peaceful demonstrations. For the last 50 years, major cities have secured political representation and yet poverty and injustice is still a plague for many African American communities. Some say integration is the cultprit for the economic disempowerment. Did the Civil Right Movement go astray by luring Black consumers into White owned stores, disintegrating the economic power base of African American communities? Why didn't Civil Rights lead to economic empowerment? Did Dr. King's followers misinterpret the vision for the Movement? Was the Dream greater than the right to integrate? How do we manifest justice, equality and empowerment today? Is the answer to African American empowerment in the hands of the lawmakers, or in the hands of the voters or in the hands of consumers? What should we learn from the lives and deaths of Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Medgar Evers and the many others who paved the way for empowerment of this present generation?

The Selma-to-Montgomery March for voting rights ended three weeks--and three events--that represented the political and emotional peak of the modern civil rights movement. On "Bloody Sunday," March 7, 1965, some 600 civil rights marchers headed east out of Selma on U.S. Route 80. They got only as far as the Edmund Pettus Bridge six blocks away, where state and local lawmen attacked them with billy clubs and tear gas and drove them back into Selma. Two days later on March 9, Martin Luther King, Jr., led a "symbolic" march to the bridge. Then civil rights leaders sought court protection for a third, full-scale march from Selma to the state capitol in Montgomery.Federal District Court Judge Frank M. Johnson, Jr., weighed the right of mobility against the right to march and ruled in favor of the demonstrators. "The law is clear that the right to petition one's government for the redress of grievances may be exercised in large groups...," said Judge Johnson, "and these rights may be exercised by marching, even along public highways." On Sunday, March 21, about 3,200 marchers set out for Montgomery, walking 12 miles a day and sleeping in fields. By the time they reached the capitol on Thursday, March 25, they were 25,000-strong. Less than five months after the last of the three marches, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965--the best possible redress of grievances.

Martin Luther King Jr was a brave man. He was a bad man. He was a man of God. He was a son. He was a husband. He was a father. He was a minister. He was a pastor. He was a civil rights activist. He was a hated man. He was a threat to the social order of White supremancy. Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated April 4, 1968 at the age of 39, in Memphis Tennessee at the Lorraine Motel by Jame Earl Ray. We have to know America's history, otherwise we may repeat mistakes of the past. Evil prevails when good men do nothing. No one can do everything. Everyone can do something. The time is now to complete the civil rights initiatives of 50 years ago.
