"I stand today as I have in the past years to commemorate the Assembly's resolution saluting Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King…As I watch the various programs and documentaries highlighting his accomplishments and others, I was sadden especially to note that initiatives that forced Plessy v. Ferguson, which said education was to be separate but equal, but was not a reality for the children of that time. Then we had Brown v. Board of Education that supposedly ended segregated schools but has not. I focus on education this afternoon because this is the greatest accomplishment that one can achieve but it is not being realized by our children," said Assemblymember Robinson, commenting on the MLK resolution.  K901
