polk us. After King's assassination many people (especially African Americans involved in the movement)were completely disenchanted with the movement and the state of America in general. King had been an advocate for peace and nonviolence and how ironic he was murdered. After his death, the movement took a more militant turn. In addition, many were growing dissatisfied with the slow pace of progress.

Remind me how many projects you've completed. Obviously this one. I'll also go back and check.
