Let Justice Roll Down

Let Justice Roll Down, Martin Luther
King Jr., The Nation
As part of Black History Month, The Nation has
reprinted articles published in the magazine during its 136-year
history, including an essay from Martin Luther King Jr. King wrote
an annual essay on the state of civil rights for the magazine from
1961 to 1966. In ‘Let Justice Roll Down,’ which first appeared in
The Nation’s March 15, 1965 issue, King discusses the success of
the Civil Rights movement and strategies for the future. Written
after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, King remains
optimistic about the future of equality, but stresses the
importance of continuing the struggle. ‘Growing out of the
struggles of 1963 and 1964, new tactical devices will emerge,’ he
wrote. ‘The most important single imperative is that we continue
moving forward with the indomitable spirit of those two turbulent
years.’
