(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Tony Thurmond (D-Richmond) and the State Assembly honored civil rights hero Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during a special ceremony on the floor of the State Assembly. “When I think about Dr. Martin Luther King Day, I think of two things,” Assemblymember Thurmond said during the tribute. “I think about how we honor the man, his legacy, his leadership, his incredible contributions to our discourse and his incredible leadership in the civil rights struggle and movement. I also think about how much further we still have yet to go.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
