Martin Luther King

Fifty years after the death of Martin Luther King, race relations are better

In our college dormitory discussions of events in the world, if anyone suggested that we would live to see a black Governor of Virginia, let alone a black president, he would have been viewed as mad. We have, fortunately, lived to see things we never imagined. The dream of Martin Luther King is not dead.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the American Dream

“With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together…” Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
