Keeping the “Dream Alive”

Today, we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. As millions of Americans honor his legacy today with a national day of service, we take a moment to reflect on Dr. King’s life and message with his own words.

Dr. KING: So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.

Martin Luther King delivered his iconic I Have A Dream speech on August 28th 1963 at a civil rights rally in Washington DC that was officially known as the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

The figurehead of the civil rights movement called for an end to racism in the US, which at the time was still segregated, both legally and in practice, in most areas of life.
