Editors’ note: 

Racial unity is a gospel issue and all the more urgent 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.’s death. The anniversary of his assassination marks an opportunity for Christians to reflect on our past and look ahead to where we must go as we pursue racial unity in the midst of tremendous tension.
