"There is but one way to commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation. That is to make its declarations of freedom real; to reach back to the origins of our nation when our message of equality electrified an unfree world, and reaffirm democracy by deeds as bold and daring as the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation."--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at the New York Civil War Centennial Commission’s Emancipation Proclamation Observance, New York City, September 12, 1962
