Martin Luther, King, Jr.’s name is synonymous with non-violent civil rights activism. King, who was born on January 15, 1929, was shot down at at 6:01 p.m. April 4, 1968. He died one hour later, at the age of 39.

There are those who say the LGBTQ movement has “co-opted” the African-American civil rights movement. I say, civil rights are civil rights. Many others agree. We should honor those who came before us in our common struggle to gain equality. Today, we should honor the memory and the achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
