(CNN) Anniversaries afford us important opportunities to reflect, but this year we approach the 57th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom having already had more than enough time and cause for reflection. At a moment when the fatal inadequacies of our public health and public safety systems are finally, powerfully and painfully clear not just to Black Americans, it's hard to imagine that anyone needs to be reminded of what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called, the "fierce urgency of now." And yet, this urgency is still being met with reactionary or performative change, as opposed to systemic reckoning.
