Civil Rights leader returns to Indianapolis to honor MLK

NOW: Civil Rights leader returns to Indianapolis to honor MLK

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and accomplishments, Congressman John Lewis reflected on his accomplishments and what the world would think of King now.

Congressman John Lewis, also a civil rights leader, was with Robert Kennedy in Indianapolis as they learned of the assassination.

Congressman Lewis gave a passionate speech near the famous park that Kennedy spoke at the day they received the news.

“Martin Luther King Jr., 50 years later will be proud of the progress that we've made but he would be disappointed that we have not made more progress. I thank God that he lived. He taught us how to live. He taught us how to stand up, to be brave, courageous and bold, and to never give up.” Congressman Lewis said.

One of Robert Kennedy’s 11 children, Kerry Kennedy, participated in the Indianapolis action on Wednesday, as well.

Kennedy spoke to students about the importance of fighting for women’s rights.

Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4th, 1968.
