On this day, we remember Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a man who fought tirelessly for equality every single day of his life. His passionate speeches and sermons touch us all years after his death. At a time when we need his words now more than ever.
“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in." – Dr. King at the March for Integrated Schools, April 18, 1959.
