Senator Scott Reflects on MLK’s Legacy 50 Years Later
Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement in honor of the 50th anniversary of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death:
“Today let us rejoice and celebrate the amazing legacy of a giant among men, a trailblazer who devoted his life to spreading the true meaning of unity, peace, and the relentless pursuit of brighter days. Dr. King helped to show us that the insurmountable power of love has the ability to conquer all evil.
While there is still much work to do, we live in a far different place from the 1960’s and that is something we should celebrate and rejoice. Dr. King should inspire us all and give us peace in knowing that the ‘promised land’ is possible and we will get there together as the American family.”
