Today we remember Martin Luther King, Jr., but do you know the names Simeon Saunders Booker, Jr. or Roy Reed? Until a few weeks ago, I didn’t. They were Civil Rights reporters. They both died last month. You may find a story about the deaths of two men an odd choice for Stories of Joy, but I find great inspiration in their lives. They were brave men who saw injustice in our world and reported on it. Their work helped change things for the better.
