There’s nothing that we can write that does justice to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s impact on our lives. For those of us in the Boomer generation, he looms as an influence over our lives as much as our own families. His words and his courage inspired our values and our beliefs. His death endowed our lives with a strange blend of high ideals and cynicism that remains today.

We’ll be taking a couple of days off to participate in events to commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. If you’re looking for a way to observe the King legacy, a calendar of events can be found at the top of the home page of the Memphis Tourism Foundation.
