Press Release from Tennessee House Democratic Caucus, Jan. 17, 2011:
NASHVILLE — On this day, it is a great honor to remember the legacy of Dr. King. He was a champion of civility; he embodied the spirit of equality, the ideal of Democratic action, determination and achievement without the need for violence.
He taught us that he had been to “The Mountaintop” and that all Americans were to love each other and care for another and take pride in being a part of something special: America. On behalf of the Tennessee House Democratic Caucus we say, Thank you Dr. King.
