LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Giving MLK His Just Due

I really enjoyed the story about the MLK Parade in the most recent Informer I picked up. I really wanted to attend, but it was way too cold for me, but I am glad it went on anyway! It’s important that we keep King’s legacy alive and stay in front of it. King wasn’t just a civil rights leader, he was a hero for all of us Blacks who are descendants of slaves in this country. He was a man of conviction, faith and family. And yes, he also changed this country forever in unquantifiable ways. Dr. King, I will lift up your name always.

Weary — and Wary — of Shutdown Talk

So the government is now open for the next three weeks. OK, great. We will see what happens then. I can’t believe what government workers in this country had to go through just because this president wants an elementary solution to illegal immigration, like a wall. I hope that when the three weeks is up nobody reports to work, especially air traffic control, so Trump will have to scurry out in front of reporters to announce the government is open once again.

  1. I remember Calvin and Wilhelmina Rolark. I wasn’t politically conscious then but remember them being active in the community. I’m sure they would be very proud of their daughter, her insight, activism and accomplishments. I am a retired DCPS schoolteacher and current substitute at The School Without Walls. I have a picture of Mrs. Rolark when she visited to speak to the studenst there in 2016. Thankyou Mrs. Denise Rolark for sharing your gifts and knowledge.
    Best Regards,
