The first thing this morning, someone wished me “Happy MLK Day.” The person who greeted me was a 30-something-year-old man on one of my social media accounts. He was not alive a half-century ago, when Dr. King was a lightning rod in America. For him, Dr. King is another American historical figure. He has no concept of what life was like in America during the days before the Civil Rights Act. For him, the day is just another holiday.
