Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of the world’s most prominent civil rights leaders. He is responsible for championing the cause of equality and justice for African Americans during the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement. His approach of nonviolence and civil disobedience, including boycotts, sit-ins, and marches, were effective in driving change in U.S. legislation, which would improve the quality of life for African Americans.  

Beyond the advancement of African Americans, Dr. King had a vision of a truly united nation regardless of race or skin color. In his infamous “I Have A Dream” speech, delivered on August 28, 1963 during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, he stated this vision by proclaiming that one day “little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” He believed that love and unity was a stronger force than hatred and division.


In remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his legacy, let’s love one another regardless of our differences. Let’s unite as Americans in declaration of equality and justice for all.
