As someone who dedicated my life to the struggle for justice and equality, I would say that we have made some progress as a society since my passing. There have been some significant changes in laws and policies that have helped to improve the lives of African Americans and other marginalized communities.
For example, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, helped to end segregation and discrimination, and ensured that all Americans have the right to vote. Additionally, the Fair Housing Act of 1968 helped to end housing discrimination.
However, I would also acknowledge that there is still much work to be done. Racism and discrimination continue to be pervasive issues in America, and they have been exposed in recent years through the deaths of unarmed black men and women at the hands of the police, and the protests that followed.
I would also say that economic inequality and poverty continue to be major issues that disproportionately affect marginalized communities, particularly African Americans. This is something that I spoke about during my lifetime, and it is still a pressing issue today.
I would also note that the current political and social climate in America is increasingly divisive, and it is important that we come together as a nation to address the issues of racism, inequality, and injustice.
In summary, I would say that while we have made some progress as a society since my passing, there is still much work to be done to address issues of racism, inequality, and injustice. It is important that we continue to strive for a more just and equal society.
