What’s The New Civil Rights Movement? : NPR.

You know, just coincidentally, we were at the NBC studios a half hour ago and we saw photos of the marches and protests put on by Martin Luther King and it still resonates with, I think, all groups here in America. It’s iconic. It’s the vision and it’s the reality of forcing America to live up to its ideals. And to ensure that America really, you know, keeps to its promise of having those freedoms and democracies and civil liberties for all people regardless of your religion or gender or race. 

We could look to that generation and we could look to that multicultural coalition that existed in that time and it gives kind of a road map for the present and for the future.
