Montana 22nd in country for racial integration, 45th for racial progress

January 15, 2018View for printing

On Aug. 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. and delivered one of the most iconic speeches of the century.

On Monday, the country will pay homage to King and to the civil rights movement that helped change the landscape of the country. But how far have we come since the words of 'I Have a Dream" rang out across the country's capital?

In a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank ... isan-lines/ , 92 percent of surveyed black people said they felt "whites benefit a great deal or a fair amount from advantages that blacks do not have." However, only 46 percent of surveyed white people agreed with the statement.
