A Prophet in Our Own Land:  A Personal Reminiscence of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

          “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”. – Martin Luther King Jr.   The day Martin Luther King Jr. died–April 4, 1968–my father was cradling his right hand with his left.
