Anniversary of the Death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the 40th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Graham said:


“Dr. King’s legacy is secure in American history and he will be viewed by generations to come as transforming our nation for the better.  At great personal risk, both to his family and himself, he challenged the status quo of segregation.  Through his words and deeds, Dr. King transformed a nation.  His legacy and works will be celebrated as long as our country remains free.  Dr. King is a true American hero.”
