The 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech was, ideally, supposed to be met with the actualization of that dream.

But MLK couldn’t imagine that the laws and social constructs that inspired his quest for equality could turn into another evil – the mass incarceration of black males.

MLK started the healing, but now it’s our turn to dream.
