Friday, we honor the 40th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s
martyrdom. King was a unique dreamer who planted a universal vision in
all of our minds; an orator who turned words and sounds into works of
art and liberation anthems…

Rev. King dreamed, but more critically he marched; he organized; he
acted…

Today, King would not let anything or anyone "turn us around." He’d
keep on dreaming and organizing to transform inequality into
"Equanomics" – race and economic equality in employment, education,
empowerment and entrepreneurship for all Americans. He’d show us
courage to face down fear, he’d help us work with love for equality and
turn anger to peaceful action. That’s the Rev. King I knew, and the one
I wish were here with us today.

Jackson is founder and president of the RainbowPUSH Coalition.
