I smiled when I read that President Barack Obama would use Dr. Martin Luther King’s bible to take his oath of office in the Inauguration. Considering African American history, it felt like a full circle moment. I’m certain Dr. King’s dream inspired the vision, hope, and presidency of Barack Obama. As we observed the second-term inauguration of President Barack Obama, now is a good time to ask: what does the legacy of Dr. King mean for little black boys and little black girls and our nation at large?
