We’ve seen it happen before. For all of his amazing work and achievements, the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., is now forever remembered only for the “I have a dream” speech. He is rarely remembered for his opposition to the war in Vietnam or his Poor People’s Campaign — topics that are not palatable now, or then, with mainstream America.

Many tributes on his passing focused on Ali’s boxing acumen, and precious little else. ...
