Nelson Reuters Essay on Martin Luther King’s Democracy Dream

Professor Janai Nelson has written King’s Deferred ‘Dream’ of Democracy for Reuters.  The piece opens:


In the midst of current retrenchments on voting rights, the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech provides an important opportunity to consider whether his “dream” has been realized. Or, is it now, in the words of the famous poet Langston Hughes, a “dream deferred.”
