(Sacramento) – Assemblymember and Vice-chair of the Legislative Black Caucus, Doctor Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) and the State Assembly honored civil rights hero Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior during a special ceremony on the floor of the State Assembly. “I am accustomed to the roller coasters of life. And I understood as a child that two steps forward and one step back makes me still one step ahead,” Doctor Weber said. “I will not be deterred because of the environment that I find myself in. I will not be discouraged because, if so, then I don’t live up to the legacy of Dr. King.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
