Guest: David Garrow, PhD, Pulitzer Prize-winning Author of “Bearing the Cross” Martin Luther King Jr. is often remembered for the soaring optimism of his “I Have a Dream” speech in the March on Washington. By the time he was assassinated on April 4, 1968, it had been five years since that march. The Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act had both passed in Congress.
