During his address to the graduating class of 1964 at Springfield College, Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said, “We must all learn to live together as brothers, or we will all perish together as fools.” 

More than fifty years later, American still sometimes struggle to coexist. In honor of Black History Month, Greater Springfield Area NAACP President Bishop Talbert Swan II reflects on the legacy of MLK’s struggle for racial equality and what Dr. King would say about the current state of race relations in 2018.
