Fifty years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. vowed to see the end of Jim Crow, Rev. Al Sharpton declared that the next generation of Jim Crow laws will be overcome as well.
“Dr. King and those that fought with him, they fought and they beat Jim Crow,” he said. “We come today to not celebrate and commemorate, but we come as the children of Dr. King to say that we are going to face Jim Crow’s children because Jim Crow had a son called James Crow Jr. Esquire.”
