Writing on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Wanted--

I thought this looked like a great project--

2008 marks the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther
King,
Jr. Passager, a national literary journal, is part of a season-long
commemoration
in Baltimore of his death, the civil rights movement, and especially the 1968
Baltimore riots.

Help us remember. Help us not forget.

Send us your poetry, fiction and memoir on race, race relations and civil
rights.
Send us memories about the civil rights movement, Martin Luther King, Jr.,

Ask your family and friends for their memories, too. Begin a conversation.
Submissions from groups are welcome, as are photographs.
