Memphis sanitation workers, a class act

40 years ago in 1968, the good Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King (MLK) traveled to Memphis, Tennessee. Martin Luther King was there is support of black American Memphis sanitation workers who were on strike. It was at this time he was assassinated by James Earl Ray. The Dallas Moring News published an article and related photo of the event, the anniversary of Doctor King's assassination. The photograph was of four of the 1968 sanitation workers as they appeared today. These four gentlemen in the photo impeccably attired a class act. They should serve as an inspiration to all American youth for their brave actions 40 years ago and for their appearance today. Many of the youth today dress like slobs and are an embarrassment to look at. Many adults who have no idea how to dress properly in public.
