Susan, thanks for a most informative post about yet another famous person I've never heard of.

The California legislature evidently doesn't know the significance of Rev. King's contributions.  Just think, without his efforts, California might have left the Union as an independent republic or joined the Confederacy.

What would have happened then?  Our country divided two or three ways?

You're right about all the monuments and memorials to RR.  Heck, our airport is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.  We oldtimers still call it plain old "National."  We see a lot of presidents here, ho hum.
