Fifty years ago this month, Martin Luther King, Jr. was slain. Thus, America lost its moral lodestar. The country was in crisis, beset by racial conflict provoked by the simple demand that a nation live up to its ideals. In his final book, Dr. King examined the direction of the civil rights movement, and the need for social and economic justice and an end to the Vietnam War. America was at a crossroads. Today, America is at a similar crossroads, with mounting internal divisions, growing economic and educational inequality, an epidemic of black deaths at the hands of police, unprecedented incarceration rates that disproportionately affect people of color, and a resurgence in white supremacy. In this event, Jelani Cobb, Gregory Pardlo, and Nikole Hannah-Jones ask the same question of our country today that Dr. King asked then: “Where do we go from here?”
