April 4 (Friday) was the anniversary of MLK's death in 1968. The following link is a bit of history: a Wall Street Journal article published four days after the assassination asking what happens next to the civil rights movement.

The article is nothing momentous. Just a bit of history. Just FYI. But I remember this stuff as a kid--the debate about who was to pick up leadership of the movement, the riots in the wake of the assassination, questions about whether the movement was going to dissolve in violence or result in even greater separation of the races, etc. So if you're interested in history and seeing the atmosphere of the times, check out the link. It's kind of fun to read, knowing how things turned out over time.
