Bob Singleton only met civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. once, but that meeting changed his life. As the 50th anniversary of King's death approaches on April 4, Singleton and others have been reflecting on the man who inspired them and the legacy he left behind.It was early 1961 and the then 24-year-old college student was protesting against Woolworths' racially segregated southern lunch counters at a picket line outside the company's Hollywood, California, store when King was introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance.The Singletons and Farrell agree there has been significant progress in racial equality in the five decades since King's death, but all are dismayed at the current state of U.S. race relations.
