The Eternal Convictions of a Man of Action

On the anniversary of his father's death, Martin Luther King III announced a campaign to continue his father's work.

As we explored on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. had transcended politics and struggled for a more equal world. As a result, the equality of people - rich or poor, black or white - was placed high on the agenda. He helped to change the world he was confronted with and his convictions have inspired a 21st century Man of Action.

The social reformer is emphasising the need for a fair wage for workers and proposed a minimum limit of $10 and hour. 

Its humbling to see that such altruistic actions have come out of such a tragedy and that Martin Luther King Jr's flame is still burning.
