“No one remembers Martin Luther King,” Max Romeo sang on “Martin Luther King,” which appeared on his 1978 album, Reconstruction. “Wasn’t he lovely?” While that might have been something of an exaggeration, Romeo makes his point by comparing the memory of King with that of other folk heroes like Marcus Garvey, President Roosevelt (Franklin, we’re assuming) and Jose Marti.
