WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter is paying tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. on this historic anniversary, even as he extols the nation to continue to work for a better America.
Carter joined members of the King family as well as President Barack Obama at a 50th anniversary ceremony on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where King delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
Carter railed against a recent Supreme Court decision that effectively erased a key anti-discrimination provision of the Voting Rights Act. He bemoaned a nation awash in guns with too many black Americans in prison.
Carter said he knows how King would have reacted, adding that "there's a tremendous agenda ahead of us."
