Marching for Justice on MLK Day
About 30 DSA and YDSA comrades marched alongside the labor contingent in the annual King Day parade, along with many other social justice organizations, community groups, school and church groups and individuals. We march each year to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and show solidarity with all who fight against racism and for social and economic justice. Some of our signs displayed quotes from Dr. King’s writings (see photo). We are proud that he was a democratic socialist. “Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.” (Speech to the Negro American Labor Council, 1961) Photo: Reid Freeman Jenkins.
